hi Neha Chadha! it could be atopic dermatitis. please consult a good dermatologist. you need to take precautions such as using a mild soap with no chemicals, using an emollient after bath such as Vaseline or other gentle Moisturizers, bath with lukewarm water and not hot water as it could cause further itching, keeping his bedsheets clean, no carpets around, changing his pillow covers often,curtains ,bedcovers to be washed frequently. preventing mosquitoes around with natural methods and making him wear washed cotton clothes as the first layer with warm clothes over them to avoid their direct contact with skin. hope this helps!
