Hi,thanks for query.This could be some insect bite or shoe bite.Which due to prolonged walking or seating has gone worse.Ask him to avoid shoe at present,apply something like lacto calamine lotion and give anti allergic drug for this.Give analgesic also which help reduce swelling and see your doctor.
wishing you good health.
