    I have a skin problem that no website has identified…there is no rash, there are no red bumps,,the bumps are invisible, yet I can feel them inside my skin and when they mature(disappear), a round egg? or scab will be dug out of them It is not scabies—those treatments do not work! The itch comes in 3 forms-a crawling sensation (like an insect crawling across your skin), a volcano of itch that slowly builds up (or goes away sometimes)that needs to be scratched eventually, or a piercing itch(like you’ve just been stabbed by a needle) the itch goes away instantly after scratching(unlike scabies)but it will instantly reappear in another location (head to bottom of feet)lately the worst has been in my eyelashes…my Doctors creams and lotions have not solved anything…and I am not unique,,my brother has the same problem, and the only solution we have found is Alcohol, the itching on my skin usually occurs at night, when trying to sleep(typical of scabies but NOT) Alcohol seems to allow you to fall asleep before the itching starts, and body temperature has a lot to do with it.
