Hives?: A rash that comes and goes within a day is most likely to be hives, one of the most miserable and frustrating of benign conditions. By now you have probably thought of every possible food or other trigger but come up with nothing. Sometimes a careful history with your doctor can uncover a known cause. If not then then the long term outlook is good but NO ONE knows HOW long.

Allergy itch: You did right to give him an antihistamine. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) should work well for the type of itching he has. Itchy eyes suggest an allergy to something in the air, but occasionally other causes may trigger eye itching as well. If he played outdoors today, there was probably a lot of pollen around. He's about the age that kids start having seasonal allergies; it takes a few years to get going on those.

Bug bites.: What you are describing could be bug bites of some type due to the nonspecific location. Because of the tropical climate, it could be any number of arthropods. You may want to see a physician for treatment since the number is so high extending over a fairly large body surface area. Additionally, watch for any signs of infection--fevers, night sweats or redness and enlargement of the actual bumps.

I have itchy bumps around my penis and my legs and on my arms. Not sure what they are?

Many possiblilities: I wish I could provide an easy answer but this requires a more detailed evaluation. Scabies is one possibility and depending on where you live I wonder if it could be poison ivy/oak/sumac.

Dermatology: I suggest seeing a dermatologist ASAP since this cannot be diagnosed without directly examination and visualization. I suggest BOTH Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and topical 1% hydrocortisone cream until seen.

Worse at night: Most symptoms tend to worsen at night due to the body 's efforts to wind down for a rest with drop in norepinephrine and cortisol production. Suggest that you apply a moisturizer on your body
