Thanks for posting your query.
From the history it looks like a condition called as Notalgia paresthetica. This occurs usually in diabetics and in vegetarians. It is due to deficiency of methycobalamin. You can take a tablet with a combination of gaba pentin and methy cobalamin with your doctor's advice. Check your blood sugars and thyroid profile.
Good day
