 My dh gets some chaffing in the summer when its hot and he uses diaper cream.  lol  He says it works great.  idk if it would work on heat rash but it probably worth a try.  He could also try cortisone cream.

I would suggest a cool oatmeal bath and some benedryl to help calm him. My one twin got this at about the same age but he had it all over and was going crazy. As far as the ball sac is concerned ask you Doc or pharmisist about a spray such as jock itch. Hope he gets better soon....I know how miserable he must be

 Oatmeal bath and maybe coconut oil

There is a terrific product on the market - Gold Bond Medicated powder. There's three varieties - one is designed for feet, but the one I buy is for bodies. It smells nice, and gets rid of the pain and the rash almost immediately. I'm overweight, and I get heat rash between my breasts and between my thighs. It can be very painful. One shake of the powder and I feel better. Also, if I use the powder when I get dressed in the morning, I don't get the rash.

Ask his doctor if corn starch will work?

My DH uses baby powder during the summer. I also put baking soda in my sons baths, softens the water and helps keep his skin from drying out. A little boy I babysat had a pretty bad one too, oddly anti fungal cream lol I thought it was anti itch cream when I first pulled it out and used it.
