Need to see it.: It is always difficult to try to diagnose a rash without being able to actually see it. I would advise you have your pediatrician look at this.

Scratched my stomach due to shaving, therefore it created some sort of a rash, and I kept scratching it leaving dark spots how can I get rid of them?

Apply vaseline ointment several times a day to keep the site moist so it will heal. Also, keep it protected from the sun as the sunlight will increase the tendency for the spot to stay dark.
