Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your child seems to have viral infection due to which he had all of the above symptoms. Some children may show allergic response to virus causing cold, so hives. But don't worry just giving Antihistamines, it will solve all the problems.
