Hi XXXXXXX,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
the tingling at the lower edge pf the rib cage can be due to local cause like a tinea.
It may be a harbinger of shingles(Herpes Zoster) also, Rarely diabetic neuropathy can present like that.
It is worthwhile that you get examined by a local physician to ascertain which of the three possibilities is troubling you.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!

My 80 year old father has a chronic skin condition - a rash which flares up every evening.....causing a great deal of pain. Heis being treated for eczma but we think it may be something linked to nervous system. Last week he described the pain over both knees as like being covered in bees. He has had bypass surgery so takes some medication. He is well in himself except for this rash which is causing a lot of distress. He had shingles several years ago so I thought it might be related. We are looking for a diagnosis so he can start to get better. Thankyou
