Hi Itchscratchy, I had exactly the same symptoms and suffering since Nov 2015. Tiny red marks appear whenever the creepy crawling feeling is felt. I noticed too it seemed to go to where the veins are. It gets into my nose, ears and around eyelids. Scalp and backside itching is worst. It seemed to be very active in the evening. My legs and skin look horrible with patches like being grazed and it seemed to cause hemorrage under skin and whereever there is a pin prick mark. My skin looks so mottled and apparently there is like a fatty lump whenever they invade. Whereever the invasion is, contact with warm to hot water or vinegar becomes very painful. The other day I could feel like a nettle pricking and forcing its way into the top of my left hand. The feeling is like there is a nettle on your skin. It took 4-8 weeks to clear. I have been given permethrin, benzyl benzoate, lice treatment, both oral and topical ivermectin, praziquantel and herbal tincture black walnut, cloves and wormwood. The ivermectin and permethrin appeared to keep them quiet when I was on it but the creepy crawling feeling eventually came back. The feeling is varied, some parts like something crawling, or feather tickle on face neck etc. Sometimes it felt like speedy movements up and down the legs, shin and calves. I find little white dots like skin sheddings on my dark clothes especially silk or polyester shows them up. I made a cream from the walnut, clove and wormwood tincture but didn't seem to shut them up. Dermatologists and doctors have yet to give me a right diagnosis, making it very difficult to treat.
