Brief Answer:
Possible allergic reaction

Detailed Answer:
hi and welcome.
First,if there are breathing difficulties or chest pain,he should see doctor immediately. Second,if you have some antihistaminic,you can give him. for example,sinopen.
This may be allergic reaction on food,or medications and if you suspect of any,this should be stopped.
Other causes include carcinoid syndrome or some dermatologic issues but it should be considered if this happens repeatedly. Wish you good health. Regards
