My advice, you should immediately consult a doctor for a direct examination. The doctor needs to ask more clearly about this complaint and need to do an examination on your child including the skin. From this examination, the doctor will know the medical conditions that underlie these symptoms and can provide the appropriate handling.
Please do the following suggestions:
use salicyl powder or calamine lotion to relieve itching symptoms
encourage children to avoid the habit of scratching if it feels itchy
clean the house and bedroom regularly
Wash spres, pillowcases and bolsters, and blankets regularly
Avoid sharing personal items such as towels or clothing
