Does the patch itch?
Does it pain when touched?
Does your son have dandruff?
This looks like a patch of eczema - also called atopic dermatitis.
Atopic dermatitis usually occurs in response to an allergen and may be linked to an overactive response by the body's immune system to an irritant.
In most cases, it is itchy. But in mild cases (such as in your son) it may not itch or cause any discomfort.
Please a mild steroid cream like 1% Cortisone, available without a prescription. Apply a good moisturiser like coconut oil or almond oil 1 hour after the steroid to keep the area well moisturized.
You should see the spot disappearing in about 4-5 days.
