I had a similar condition several years ago. It ended up being a bug that actually spreads under the skin, somewhat like ring worms but without the outward appearance. I forget what the condition was called but it can be transferred by simply touching or sharing a towel used by someone else that has this condition. I forget if it was treated by an ointment a pill or both as it was a long time ago but once I started treatment they were gone within about a week. Additionally I remember having to use a lice or crab type treatment in my laundry to kill them. (Yes that means everything must be laundered!) Wear nothing that hasn’t been treated in this fashion or they’ll just return. If you go to a gym that supplies towels take your own from home.
If that’s what it is one wants to always use clean, fresh and treated towles when bathing and don’t share items of clothing etc….

Otherwise Id ask if you have pets and/or carpets, if so you might have a flee infestation in your carpets they will bite and jump off, I say this as you describe the condition to be on your legs, if that’s the case you’ll need to have all of your carpets treated.

Hello,
This feeling of crawling sensations that you are having are called Paresthesia. Chronic paresthesia indicates a problem with the functioning of neurons.

Are you a diabetic or do you take alcohol?Parasthesias are common in alcoholics and metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidismThey 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 tingling is gone or not.

In case the symptoms persist then pls consult a neurologist as it can be due to some neurological disorder.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Warm regards.

Perhaps you are just feeling energy. Most likely you are not into alternative stuff, but just as a point of reference and to ease your mind, the sensation of energy moving throughout a person's body feels like little bugs or even water droplets running down your skin. Most people do not have the internal body awareness to feel this sensation, but it is definately a positive thing. As for the pock marks, it is possible that you are making yourself so hysterical by the bugs sensation that you are causing the pocks to happen. Like when a child gets so upset that they cause themselves to throw up. Trying changing your perspective on the bugs sensation, thinking about it as something positive and see if your symptoms change.

Thats odd, A couple of months ago, I began to feel in my upper left outer thigh the feeling of ants crawling around on my leg when i would lay down. There was never any bugs there and it started to happen when just standing too. It went away and now the feeling is back and is now lower down around my knee. Very itchy.!

Eat a lot of raw organic garlic and other organic vegetables like carrots, and greens, and the problem should go away. My husband and I had what sounds like the same problem, bugs crawling on us, stinging us, but we could not see anything. No one from the medical industry would help us.

Long story short, I figured it out, I contracted some kind of skin parasite probably from exposure to mold growing under my bathroom sink. I decided to eat nothing but raw organic garlic, almonds, carrots, greens, and by late afternoon, the problem was about 99% gone. My husband's problem went away quickly but for me, it took a few more days. We were both suffering from some type of fungus - he had a minor foot fungus and I had severe intestinal yeast. The severity of my problem was why it took longer for me. But that is what attracted this parasite to us, it lives on fungus.

I still stay on a pretty strict candida diet and no recurrence. Try it, it can't hurt.

I have had this experience in 1 year and a half ago. It felt itchy mostly at nite. Tiny bumps usually in line formation would appear after a sudden itch. The areas that were worse were the groin, under breast, hands, and buttox. After some research, and a trip to a dermatologist, I found it was scabies. They are relentless. The itch can become so unbearable that it felt like fiberglass. I spent a lot of nights crying. Anyway, I am currently experiencing and itchy feeling again. However, the areas are not the same. Now it's mostly my arms, back, scalp, and face. Actually, my scalp is driving me crazy. I have been to the doctor who jumped into a conclusion without a thorough checkup and stated it was a spider bite reaction and prescribed a cortisone cream. Well, it's been almost two weeks and I am still feeling the itch. Sometimes less than others tricking me into thinking Im beating this. But once nite falls, the scalp drives me crazy. Actually I think my scalp is the root of the issue. I get rid of the itch on my body but not on my scalp, next thing you know my face, then arms, then back start itching again.

I forgot to mention...Permetherin cured the scabies. However, I am not sure what I have this time around since the doctor just did a visual. I have tried permethrin to be on the safe side. I has helped some but if it were scabies, I'd be done after two applications. But I have already applied Permethrin about 5 times. That's because I never did it to the scalp since the doctor stated scabies mites don't attack the head or face of an adult. and that's were the itch is stemming from possibly reinfesting my body from neck to torso.I am almost sure I have a bug but don't know which. I have also tried Apple cider vinegar, Epson salt soaks, Sulfur soap, and Tea Tree Oil. Again, I would feel relief but my scalp still itches and then it would start all over again. I will be visiting another doctor to get a second opinion.

Perhaps the invisible bugs are:

a)  sticktight fleas love humans and can be readily transmitted if you have a bird feeder
b)   thrips--they do bite and will go for people with a systemic fungal infection, bacterial infection, etd.
c)  other horrors such as collembola that lay their eggs in your houseplants and may stray from the plants and lay some eggs on you--inadvertantly--of course, you taste better than the houseplant so before you know it, you have a full-blown infestation
d) the Hulda Clarke protocol of black walnut hull, clove caps, and wormwood + sulphur paste will help.
e)  I recommend not having houseplants
