Brief Answer:
Possibility of chicken pox

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.

Perhaps he has chicken pox which is characterized by an eruption of papules and fluid filled vesicles on an erythematous base. The lesions usually appear in crops. How is it today? Are there any new lesions? Does he has any symptoms like itching? Burning? Fever etc.
