This is an infection and needs to be looked at by a doctor. Some soaps can cause this and you need to make sure that it is cleaned properly by gently pulling the tip back and washing the soap away. Make sure he is drinking well diluted drinks and water is best to flush his kidneys.

This could be a contact infection from soap or a nappy or this could be a bladder infection that needs antibiotics. Make an appointment at the doctors and in the mean time put some cream on it like Sudocrem which will sooth and act as a barrier.
