Thanks for your query. By what you describe it is more likely to be urticaria. However it is better that you consult a doctor who will be the best person to guide you.

Urticaria is a manifestaion of an allergic reaction to food or medicine. Anti-histamine should help and since it has not worked in your son's case it is all the more to know the exact problem.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
