My son 2yr old n his hair falling alot no dandruff or wring worm but he's itching not to much his blood work came out nothing wrong with his thyroid ?

My son 2yr old n his hair falling alot no dandruff or wring worm but he's itching not to much his blood work came out nothing wrong with his thyroid

Reassuring: The fact his thyroid and blood work are normal is good. The itching is still suspicious for either infection or allergic reaction.
