This is Dr. David
this sharp thing under the skin most likely is scar tissue or scabbing from scratching or plaques under the skin from psoriasis or scabies skin infection
you need a skin biopsy to know what is going on in the skin
you could have a skin scabies skin infection
you could be having severe itching of your skin which can cause scratching and sensations which feel like parasites under your skin.
