I wouldn't be worried, but I would suggest he get it looked at and treated.  it could be a fungus (non-contagious, by the way) or an chafing type of irritation.  Why not have him try some over-the-counter 1% clotrimazole cream twice a day for a week, while he arranges to see a doctor about it.

Best.
