You can get Allergax syrup. This is an antihistamine and will be helpful to treat the rash and itchiness. I do however, suggest that you consult a doctor for an examination, as his skin rash can be due to a parasitic infection or bacterial skin infection. It is most likely an allergic reaction to some unknown allergen but it is advisable to have it investigated.

Did he swim in the sea ? It could be a reaction to the salt water here or a body board surfing. Just a guess, hope all is well.
