Allergy/Insect: From your description appears like allergic spots. But check to make sure he does not have any insect bite marks. Try topical Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) by mouth. If not subsiding try steroid cream 1% or 0.5% (tiny amount). If both not helping consult physician. ...Read more

Eczema?: By location and symptoms, it sounds like eczema. When it goes away, it sometimes leaves lighter patches.

Chickenpox: That's just a wild guess. I'm hopeful that you would have already received your chickenpox vaccination which would make this very unlikely. However, it's best for you to go see your family doctor for an evaluation & diagnose along w/appropriate treatment.
