Feeling worms crawling in skin, invisible bugs everywhere, especially at night. Red dots on skin. What is this?

Hi. Lately I ve been feeling worms crawling in my skin. Or invisible bugs everywhere. Not all the time but mainly at night. I do have little red dots that look like blood marks but is more imprinted on my skin. I will even touch my body where I feel the sensation and sometimes feel convinced that I feel something swearming inside like a worm. But it is everywhere with no pattern. This has barley started happening since last couple day.

Thanks for your query,

Feeling worm crawling under skin can be due to irritation of never, drugs, stress/anxiety or Delusions of parasitosis.

It is often known as formication and reassuring patients that no parasitosis exists can be difficult because they typically refuse to believe that their disease is functional rather than organic. Although results of objective laboratory tests may satisfy the doctor, psychiatric therapy must be approached in patients with delusional parasitosis.

Hope it helps.

Take care!
