Cf, you give me to few symptoms to make a proper diagnosis with. It might be that he suffers from an infection of some sorts or that he has a metabolic disorder, but I will have to examine him before I can make a diagnosis. The best would be for him to see a doctor and have it sorted out. Good luck.
