Hi,
It seems that as this happened suddenly, there might be having some poisonous bite giving rise to allergic reaction, itching and infection.
Give him antihistamine like Cetrizine or Benadryl for 2-3 days.
Give him one course of antibiotic medicine for 3-5 days.
Apply triple acting cream locally.
Keep local hygiene proper.
Ok and take care.
