Patient : My 3yr old has a severe iron deficiency (barely registers) and he was placed on a iron mixture. He has been on this mixture for a month and i don't think its making any difference and his body is expelling it in his bowel movements.
My question is can this iron mixture cause itchiness? It is mainly on his head. I have thoroughly checked his hair and scalp for head lice and it has been washed to get rid of sweat and dirt
