In this post, we will look into a common symptom that often goes unnoticed because it those who have it don’t really know how to resolve the issue. This symptom is known as ‘crawling sensation’.
What is crawling sensation?
Crawling sensation is the feeling of tiny insects crawling across or underneath the skin. Also known as ‘formication,’ this symptom has no physical signs, and can drive people crazy due to the itchiness, distracting many from being able to focus on certain tasks. Formication is a well documented symptom, which has numerous possible causes. The word is derived from formica, the Latin word for ant.
Is this sensation a real disease?
Some doctors interpret this feeling a tactile hallucination, but it can be categorized as a real disease when it became a symptom of Parkinson’s disease, since it brings feeling of “pins and needles”.
Causes of crawling sensation
- Parkinson’s disease
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Herpes zoster (shingles)
- Lyme disease
- Skin cancer, such as cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma
- Prescription or recreational drug use like cocaine, ecstasy, crystal meth and more.
In many cases, formication is most common at night.
