Most likely he is experiencing an allergic reaction to his bedding. remove him from the cage and change his bedding. Do not use cedar or pine they are to harsh causing respiratory reactions to small animals. Aspen or shredded paper works well.

You need to get this guinea pig to an exotic vet asap. Possiblity is mange.
Mange mites can kill.

These microscopic mites burrow under the skin and cause severe pain. You may notice scratching, biting, hair loss, and in serious cases, seizures. Severe infestations can be life threatening. If you suspect one of your cavies have mange mites, treat them all (they can be carriers while not showing signs) as soon as possible. Ivermectin is the treatment of choice. Multiple doses are necessary because ivermectin does not kill the eggs. Read more about ivermectin.

Mange mites are not zoonotic. On rare occasions they may cause some temporary itchiness for sensitive people but cannot reproduce or live on humans.
