It can be a allergic reaction to those food items. Consult a physician and get specific allergic food detected through panel of IgG blood test.  Keep noting the food which he eats till we point out the exact item. In case of severe allergic reactions Dr. May add steroids which should not be stopped abruptly. Follow physicians instructions.
Next Steps
Consult a physician
Health Tips
Avoid those food causing allergy.

It's a case of allergy.nothing much can be done except for antihistamines ( anti allergics).
Avoid such food .
Over a period of time it may subside partially or fully.
