Does not itch him but saw to touch

Thank you for the input.
It is likely due to an allergic reaction.
The cause can be a bite, exposure to an irritant.
There can be dermatitis too.
The rash has decreased, the rest would disappear gradually.
You can apply hydrocortisone cream there.
It would help to reduce the redness.
If you do not notice any improvement in next few days, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
