Hi there. My name is***** to hear that Tom is unwell. I will do my best to help with your question.

​It sounds from your description that Tom may be having an allergic reaction. Of course, he should ideally be going to a vet for urgent care, but I understand that you don't have access to any vets there. Do you have access to any local pharmacies?
