Hi dear

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Please observe the kid to find out the substance he is allergic to and avoid that substance in future.Even though it doesnt seem that he ate something , it might be anything that can cause an allergy.You can consult your pediatrician for anti allergic medications.
Once found the allergy causing substance , you can opt for desensitization.
Take care.
