Hi there...I can understand your concern. It is a very delicate situation to deal with. First and foremost he will have to evaluated for any genital disease leading to itching. If no such thing is there, then it is best he is taken to a psychiatrist for further counselling. It is best for the child if both the parents accompany him to the psychiatrist.
