Brief Answer: Probably a transient phenomenon Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you so much for trusting us with your health query. I am so sorry to hear about these tingling sensation you are experiencing. The number one cause of abnormal sensation on the skin is peripheral neuropathy. This happens when nerves that supply the ski are affected by diseases like diabetes. However, it is very unlikely for this to be the site of an inaugural peripheral neuropathy. My greatest suspicion is that this is a transient phenomenon as of now. If new information should come up like a rash, pain, etc, we would be able to make to raise new possible causes. For now, there is just not enough information to suggest otherwise. For now, use suiting measures like gentle rubbing to relief the discomfort if it is very bothersome. I hope you find this helpful. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and please do feel free to ask for more information if need. Thanks. Dr. Ditah, MD.
