hi.

noted history of jaundice associated with pruritus (generalized itchiness). it is possible that your son has an obstruction (from a stone or a lesion) somewhere along his hepaticopancreaticobiliary tree causing his jaundice. deposit of bile salts causes his pruritus. it is best if you bring him to a doctor, preferably a general surgeon or a gastroenterologist, for physical examination and clinical evaluation. diagnostics (such as ultrasound, ct-scan, MRCP/ERCP, liver function tests, etc.) and management (medical and/or surgical if indications are found) will be directed accordingly.

hope this helps.

good day!!
