Hi there,
Threadworm infestation, pruritis ani, eczema, psoriasis, haemorrhoids all can lead to anal itching. Loss of appetite, severe irritability, sleeping difficulties and weight loss are some of the common symptoms of worm infestation. Inability to gain adequate weight in children can be due to umber of factors. Poor eating habits, chronic diarrhea, worm infestation, celiac disease, iron deficiency anaemia,UTI,cystic fibrosis etc.Get your child evaluated by  a Paediatrician.A clinical examination and work up for above mentioned conditions will be really helpful in diagnosis and  management. I sincerely hope it helps. Do keep us posted.
Take care and regards!
