Many rashes and such are autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune and psychosomatic illness are often the ones which result best to spiritual and emotional medicine. Maybe there is a physical cure if the cause happens to be purely physical, but usually autoimmune diseases have an emotional cause. It's the bodies warning system that it has reached an allostatic burden and load, and needs comforting or attention. Too much stress keeps your nervous system in a sympathetic response (also known as fight or flight), which is great for short periods, but harmful over long periods because this nervous system response doesn't allow optimal digestion, cell production and waste removal, muscle relaxation ect....
If he wants to try physical cures, it might not hurt. My friend was prescribed antibiotics long term as a treatment, and this not only fucked up his digestion and body, but also made his rash worse, so also be careful what treatments you get talked into. Some doctors are great, but some some prescribe pretty stupid treatments... If physical treatments don't work, then maybe he will be willing to try other treatments.
If he does work on spiritual or emotional healing, at least it shouldn't worsen any symptoms. Might even have other benefits! My friends path trying to heal his rash led to his entire life changing in a pretty dramatic but incredibly positive way so far. He was previously depressed, and has become very excited about life.
