Hi Cathy, we know casts are exceptionally itchy but for this instance we recommend reaching out directly to your grandson's provider who put him in the cast. You or parent/or guardian can message his provider directly via MyChart and find out next steps to help alleviate the pain he's mentioning and get the eraser out.
