See a doc: These symptoms could be the sign of a serious allergic reaction if the child accidentally ate one of the foods s/he is allergic to. It could be asthma, but the itchy chest does not match this diagnosis, unless that is the way the toddler is describing "shortness of breath". Seek medical assistance immediately... Call your pediatrician.
