Extreme fatigue, rashes after itching. Is related to adrenal fatigue and Sergent s White Line Test on the abdomen?

My 7 year old son is suffering from extreme fatigue. I have noticed when he is tired he rubs his nails gently across his body. This leave very visible white lines for 5 to 10 minutes. Ive read about adrenal fatigue and Sergent s White Line Test on the abdomen . Does the same result apply when the gentle scrape is applied to the legs or any other part of the body, or is it just the abdomen? If it is only relevant to the abdomen, why is this? Thank you

Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day
Its unlikely your son is suffering from adrenal fatigue at this age. His symptoms could be due to dryness of skin which could be due to Vitamin and Essential fatty acid deficiency.
Deworming your child with antihelminthic drug like Albendazole and vitamin supplementation will help.

Wishing you and your family a very Happy and healthy life.
Take care
