Brief Answer:
Fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
It is looking like pityriasis versicolor, a fungal infection common in children.
I treat such cases with an antifungal cream like clotrimazole to be applied twice daily for a month.
It is safe and effective and usually available over the counter.
You can try this.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
