Yes, it definately sounds like he is having an allergic reaction to it. Can your son take any otc anti inflammatories like childrens Advil? This might take some of the swelling down in addition to the ice. Definately keep an eye on it and if it becomes even worse, you might want to take him back in to the ER. Do you know what stung him?
