Thank you for your query.

I would have loved to help you out but without having a look at the lesions it is very difficult for me to guide. I suggest that you show your son to a doctor/skin specialist and follow the advice.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
