Thanks for posting your query.
Allergic symptoms are slow to respond if the causative agent or allergen is not removed. Detection of the allergen is necessary for a complete relief. You can get his allergy test done at your doctor's office for diagnosis.
He also can participate in an elimination diet where suspected allergens are removed from the diet for two weeks and then slowly re-introduced to see if any allergy symptoms develop.
In addition he can apply calamine lotion which will help in soothing the skin and give him foods XXXXXXX in vitamin C which is a general anti-allergy supplement. It helps stabilize mast cells so they are less likely to release histamine. You can also give a diet XXXXXXX in vitamin C like citrus fruits, oranges, papaya, grapefruit, raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, and pineapple.
I hope this answers your query.

Sir, spots are not coming out permanently. When it tends to come out it feel itching.Body temperature 100degree F. at present. Should we increase dose Omnacortil-10 or more mg.? How long it will take fully recover? After taking these medicines feels sleepy. Dr. last year also he suffered the same symtoms in the same season. What are the steps should we take care not to come again?

Thanks for writing again.
The intermittent bouts of rashes and seasonal association further confirm it to be allergic in nature. Omnacortil is a steroid and the dosage should be carefully monitored according to the response by a dermatologist. Do not increase or decrease the doses by yourself without any clinical assessment.
You need to start taking the antiallergics before the beginning of the season so as to have a minimal reaction to the allergens.
Avoid dust and smoke.
Cetrizine might cause the sleepiness he is having. You can change the anti allergic to fexofenadine after consulting the dermatologist.
Hope my answer is helpful.
