It appears to be an acute urticaria reaction. This can happen due to variety of reasons. There is a saying in medical book that it can be caused by anything under the sun including the sun itself. Finding the cause is justified only if the allergy persists more than 6 weeks. He can take levocetrizine 5mg to 20mg per day for now depending on severity of itch. For complete blood work up and cause of allergy please visit a dermatologist.
Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital. Bangalore
