Brief Answer:
It may be urticaria or angioedema - kindly upload images

Detailed Answer:
Hi.... I understand your concern. By what you say it looks like an Urticaria or Angioedema. For me to be even more helpful to you I suggest you upload some images of what you are quoting and also answer my questions.

Questions -

1. Did he eat anything which is new to him or did he wear any new clothing material?

2. Is there any history of fever or joint pains?

3. Is there any history of insect bite are playing in shrubbery?

4. How is his urine output?

Brief Answer:
Urticaria - Suggestions given

Detailed Answer:
Hi.... I have seen the images. It is Urticaria.

You can use Hydroxyzine (Atarax) at 1-2mg/kg/dose every 6th to 8th hourly for 7-10 days. Most important thing to be remembered is that it has a propensity to recur (called as second crop) within 10-14 days. If this happens, you can start using the same medicine but I suggest you get the kid evaluated with your paediatrician.

Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.

Brief Answer:
In some countries it's OTC drug - otherwise continue Benadryl

Detailed Answer:
Hi...yes, in some countries it's an OTC drug. I don't know about your country.

If you are not able to get it, better continue with Benadryl at 5-7.5ml thrice a day for 3 days.
