This could be hives which can occur in setting of diarrhoea( abdominal infection) and worm infestation.
To treat the same, taking syrup cetirizine would help. Application of calamine lotion would soothe the skin too. To treat worm infestation, a single dose of albendazole might be required. Kindly consult a paediatrician for diarrhoea and worms.
