This is called Formication and if you don't have any skin lesions or signs of dermatitis could be a sign of anxiety disorder. It can also be caused by diabetes, menopause, infections like Syphylis, and be a side effect of medication like Ritalin, Prozac and withdrawal from alcohol and amphetamine.
Please ask your GP to check your blood for diabetes, low esterogen levels and/or syphylis if you think you could be at risk of an infection.
