Yes, this does sound like a form of an allergic reaction to something....it could be an insect bite or something else he encountered. You can give him Benadryl at 1 mg per pound of his weight every 12 hrs. It is easier to give the liquid Pediatric form which is 12.5 mg per teaspoon....don't get worried if he starts having excessive salivation when you give this. It is a normal reaction to teh stress and will nto harm your guy. The anti histamine will, hopefully, stop this reaction quickly.Does that make sense to you?
