Bugs Crawling On Skin Feeling?
0

8 posts in this topic

A lot of the time I always have this itchy feeling of bugs crawling one me, or I am just plain old itchy all over despite not having a rash (well i have a chronic rash on my knee's/elbows and sometimes it shows up on my outer thighs). I'm just wondering if this could be a symptom. My face is always dry/flaky looking, theres always red/flaky skin around my nostrils, and my scalp ALWAYS has scabs and itchy bumps, seriously my scalp itches so bad sometimes I just can't sleep.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Sure sounds like Dermatitis Herpetiformis...

How long have you been eating gluten free?

I get this feeling any time I'm using lotion/soap/shampoo that isn't gluten free.

im not gluten free yet. I don't know if I'm going gluten free. My doctors office called and said all results were ok. But they didn't give me the details of the results so I don't even know what the numbers are. Do you think I should call for a copy to be sent? I tested for a moderate gluten allergy and I tested sever for a milk allergy but i've never had a reaction to dairy other then a stomach ache (maybe headache and rash, hard to say)

I don't have blisters though, isn't that what DH is? I just get scabs on my head and I don't know if its from scratching it at an earlier time. Sometimes my head doesnt itch at all. Maybe i should take notice to when it starts to itch and what i ate before the itching started.

I'm just frustrated that my doc said the results are ok because I don't feel ok.

Not had that experience thankfully but have you thought about psoriasis ?

You should ask for copies of your tests. You can post the results here and there is usually someone who can read those results. I had sores on my scalp for years. At one point I thought I must be sensitive to something in shampoos. I stop using them but still had the problem. Once I went gluten-free the problem has mostly solved. I still have an itchy scalp but seldom have any breakouts. I'm wondering now if I cut the dairy completely out if it would help the itchiness has someone else had suggested. I'm paying attention this week if on days when there is no dairy if I'm less itchy.

Nothing really to add except a chance to use a word I learned recently:

Formication is the medical term for a sensation which resembles that of insects crawling on (or under) the skin.
