It could be one of a few different things...a fungal infection, a bacterial infection, or ammonia burns/similar injuries. If you have a vet in your area who treats frogs, I would make an appointment asap so they can properly diagnose him (it's really not easy to diagnose animals over the internet--not only are we not vets but we also can't run any tests).
If not, I would first get your water tested. Make sure you don't have ANY ammonia or nitrites. Even a small ammonia spike could burn a frog's skin like that.
If your water tests ok, do a large water change and begin treating with a general medication for infections (like Binox). The problem is that we don't know if it's bacterial or fungal. So if one medication doesn't work, try the other. Use small doses at first to see how the frog responds. There really aren't any medications on the market approved for aquatic frogs, sadly. The best you can do is use one for fish. That's why I recommended seeing a veterinarian--they can help you with dosages and everything.
