Brief Answer:
Seems like eczema, topical steroid, antihistaminic & moisturising lotion

Detailed Answer:
It seems to be eczema.
I would recommend you to apply a topical steroid like desonide cream on the affected areas twice daily along with frequent and liberal application of a moisturising lotion like cetaphil moisturising lotion on the entire body 2-3 times in a day.
For itching give him antihistaminic like syrup cyproheptadine 2.5 ml twice daily.
These are prescription drugs and should be taken under the supervision of the doctor.
