Thanks for the query,

He might have developed acute urticaria.

It is an allergic condition.

Anything including food, cloth, change in climate, pollens etc can cause urticaria.

You need to find out the cause.

Treatment can be with oral anti histamines.

Steroids like prednisolone are also helpful but cannot be used for long.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
