Hello Dear and thanks for the query
Do not worry, it is the natural healing process of chicken pox lesions and they will clear up in 7-10 days. Continue same medications as your doctor has prescribed you. Do not try to peel the black or red spots as they put a mark on your brother's face. Let the lesions heal on there on. Hope you got your answer.
Best Wishes
