Needs to examined: How long ago did he get bitten? There are some patients who have an allergic reaction after getting bitten by insects and they would benefit from using an antihistamine cream initially after the bite. If this does not improve the condition then it would be good for you to see you GP and he would be able examine and treat accordingly.
