Hi
Welcome to the forum!
A localized crawling sensation just below the eyes could be due to dry skin, eczema, eye strain, farsightedness, and near sightedness. If you are a lady in the menopausal age, then this is a common symptom. Hormone replacement therapy often helps. It is also seen in people who are very anxious and stressed out. Hypothyroidism is another cause.
If you have a history of Lyme’s disease in the past then also it can result in Morgellons disease which mimics scabies and causes a sensation of skin crawling.
It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
