Felix vs. the dogspit covered softball

For the first few minutes after he got beaned by his cousin Gracie (she's only about 6 months older than him), there was a big red spot on his forehead that was completely broken out in hives. Then the hives started to spread.

This pic was taken only about 10 minutes after he got hit. I think there's a good chance he might be allergic to dogs...

Update (Sunday, 6 pm): Felix's eye is still red and you can still see the hives. It's much better than it was yesterday, but still. Also, I was giving him Benedryl while I took the picture, and although it helped, it didn't clear it up completely. So a day and a full (toddler) dose of Benedryl later, and the dogspit still has a hold on him. He still doesn't seem to mind, although he has been scratching his head and face quite a bit and rubbing his eye. Yup, definitely allergic to dogs.
