Hi,

How is your son? This could be tinea versicolor  which presents with pale oval or irregularly-shaped spots which  affect the back, underarm, upper arm, chest, lower legs, and neck.  It is caused by a type of yeast that are normally found on the human skin and can proliferate in conditions such as warm and humid environment. Over-the-counter topical antifungal medications  may help. If it persists, have this evaluated further for proper stronger prescription medication.  Recurrence is also common for this condition.

Take care and keep us posted.
