It might be ringworm. My daughter had it when she was about that age. It's not a real "worm", but an infection. My daughter had it all over her body. It's usually transmitted by cats, sometimes by dogs.
We had our dogs checked and it was negative. It turns out that the previous tenant of our apartment had cats and didn't have the carpet properly cleaned when he moved out.
The ringworm started shortly after we moved in.
The pediatrician presctibed some cream and it worked.
Just google it and see if the marks match.
