Customer Question

My son is 7 and has always complained of itchy skin. I have cut tags off all his clothes and moisturise his skin incase it s dry and causing itchiness. I have had him to my doctor but she can't find anything. He has recently started to squirm and pull at his clothes all the time. It looks really bad, and people are starting to comment. I don't know what do do next. Is this physical or psychological? What should I do next?
