Since when is it there?

Did you consult doctor or try any measure?

He's had it since yesterday. He has no other symptoms. It seems to be spreading from his eyes the side of his cheek and upper lip. Has a purpleish sort of tint to it

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
The rashes can be due to different conditions.
Allergy, sun burn are common causes.
Immunological condition should be checked.
Infection can be possible.
Cool compression can have soothing effect.
You can give Zyrtec.
Hydrocortisone cream can be applied if you have.
I would advise to get him checked by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
