Hello,
If the biopsies have come out clear, then it is unlikely that there are some mites. Crawling sensations can be found in metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidism. They can also be due to peripheral vascular disease, vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition.

Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated. You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the crawling is gone or not.

In case the symptoms persist then please consult a neurologist as it can be due to some neurological disorder. For the bumps, I would like to rule out any folliculitis or cysts. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
