Little brother gets random large scabs?

My 10 year old brother is having random scabs that he has no idea how he got in weird places. One group is in an armpit, another on his upper thigh and a similar scab is on his knee. They dont seem to be healing, and are only partially scabbed over. Could it be some sort of rash or parasite?

Does it look like ringworm? Link at bottom.

If not, he should be taken to a pediatrician to have a white blood cell count done. A low white cell count can inhibit a person's body from healing from infection and there are some diseases with more serious consequences.
