Thanks for writing in.
There is nothing to be worried about.
It can be seborrheic dermatitis, Vitamin B12 deficiency, knuckle hyperpigmentation.
You can give him multivitamin supplements.
Use a good quality moisturizer like venusia lotion.

These will help a lot.
I encourage you to visit a qualified dermatologist or physician for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Hope this helps.
