Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is a result of unaccustomed or strenuous exercise. It usually starts 12 to 24 hours after the exercise. It often lasts for several days. Resistance exercises actually cause micro-tears or micro-damage to your muscles. It is during the recovery period that your muscles are healed and strengthened. This is when you build stronger muscles. You must allow for a recovery period between exercise sessions on a muscle group. You can concentrate on your legs one day, your arms another day, and your core (abs and back) yet another day. But, give each muscle group an opportunity to recover and be strengthened. Many people exercise each group of muscles only once each week, letting the muscles rest the other 6 days.

I can say this without knowing any further details about yout: EAT MORE. Start with eating 200 gr of protein a day and as your bodyweight increases, up your protein intake further. There's no such thing as too much; only too little. You should never train a sore muscle as it hasn't fully recovered, meaning you'll be tearing it down further, not allowing it to become bigger and stronger. If your goal, however, is not to get bigger or stronger then, by all means, do those workouts that "needs every parts of the body." The soreness you're referring to, by the way, is called Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).
