Put some calamine lotion to the area where ther is itching, it is very good. It cools the skin, causes relive from itching and it also soothens the skin.

mu son who is 2 years old is suffering from itching as well and the doctors are suspecting that he has a liver disease, sorry to say that but better do some blood tests.

Hi
Welcome to heathlcare magic forum
Itching all over the body suggests, most commonly scabies, urticaria/hives. Liver disease also causes generalized itching, but other symptoms are also seen ,most commonly yellow color of skin, conjuctiva, change in appetite etc. Please visit a pediatrician for diagnosis and treatment. A lotion containing calendula and aloe vera can be useful, for some relief.

It could be Psoriasis/scabies. Take him to a skin specialist soon.
