Hello,

You can consult a general physician first, he can direct you accordingly based on initial evaluation.
Fibromyalgia can present like these.
If he has itching over the hands especially between fingers he might require a dermatologist to rule out parasitic infestation like scabies or pediculosis.
Since he had lost weight in last few months, a detailed work up may be needed.
