From your description it seems like he is suffering from vitiligo. As skin looses melanin pigment patients are more likely to develop sun burns. He should use a spf 40 sunscreen when outdoors. Vitiligo is a complex disorder and needs prolonged treatment before it stabilised. Consult your dermatologist for assistance.
