    Assuming that the bowel movements are normal, this could be due to intestinal parasites/worms. This is somewhat common in children. However if he is experiencing any major change in bowel movement, has a fever, is not eating ad losing weight then it may be more serious. Rather take him to see a doctor just to be cautious. Kids tend to complain about stomach pains, sometimes for no specific reason, and the most common cause of anal itching is poor hygiene. But rather let a doctor rule out that this is not due to any serious condition.
