In brief: Yes

It's not unusual for allergy symptoms to be worse at night, particularly if he's allergic to something in his bedroom, like dust or pet hair. Antihistamines like Claritin and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can help.
So can cleaning the room, using hypoallergenic pillowcases, and other measures to avoid allergens.
