Red face Advice: BF has strange red rash.

Hello everyone,
I was wondering if anyone could clue me in in what to tell my BF about his rash I discovered last night right before I was leaving his apt. While he was laying face down on his bed, I noticed behind his butt a rash, like a trail of red scratched bumps that looked like acne but it wasnt. They looked like scabs, like when you have a masqutio bite and you scratch them out and it looks like scabs. Well, there was a lot of them in a line trail almost comming from almost inside his theighs to outside his butt down his legg. It wasnt large or huge, but definately a noticeable rash. Uff. Could this be Hereps or Scabies. He said he hasn't had Acne since he was 16. It sorta looked like maybe he had a couple on his arms. Uff. I am worred, should I be worried?? If anyone could relate I would appreacite the feedback.

It is not herpes. It might be a basic fungal infection, like jock itch. Try some Lotrimin ointment.

It looked photos on the web of Scabies. It looks almost familiar.
