Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. From what you described he seems to have allergies and it would be prudent to consult an allergist. If he develops swollen tongue or breathing difficulty take him to the nearest emergency room. Wish you and your brother good health!
