Annoying sensation of itchiness & crawling

I just joined this site but I'm not sure if is where I should be. I joined to try and help my son. He has the annoying sensation of bugs crawling under his skin.

He doesn't have psoriasis. But he has eczema, but only on his hands And he gets the sensation of itchiness and crawling under his skin all over his body.

  1. is this how you are feeling at the moment? I get that same crawling sensation and I find soaking in a bath helps.

    1. Me too! It is very uncomfortable.

      1. Hi ! Just wanted to jump on here and share my experience with just this thing:

        It's such a bizarre sensation and difficult to describe if you've never experienced it.

          1. , thank you for joining the conversation here, and I'm sorry to hear that you can relate to the itchy/crawly sensation that mentions. If it would be helpful, we have a couple of articles on this sensation and how it relates to psoriasis (you may have to copy and paste the URLs if they don't appear clickable - I'm not sure why this happens sometimes!):

            Have you been able to chat with your doctor about this? And is there anything that helps you cope with this sensation? Warmly, -Catherine, Community Moderator
