Hi,

Thanks for the image sent.

I had a look at it and the lesions appear like ones in mild eczema caused by allergic reaction.Absence of itching and flat lesions do support the fact.

I suggest you to give him a course of Benadryl after consulting his treating doctor.

If there is any amount of itching then the chances of the lesion being Tinea are to be considered and antifungal cream be applied to get rid of them.

Hope I answered all your questions. Please use any answer clarification before closing and rating this answer. I will be happy to explain or expand on any issue you may have.

Regards,
