do you have excessive anxiety symptoms?

excessive anxiety can cause you to have crawling sensations on your scalp and face

you may need to be treated with anti-anxiety medications to help decrease these crawling sensations for you.

have you taken anti-anxiety medications before?

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

it does sound like you have anxiety symptoms.

anxiety can cause magnification of symptoms

and can cause you to have sensations of crawling on your scalp.

even mild dry skin can cause itching and crawling sensation if you have bad anxiety symptoms.

you need to talk to your doctor or a psychiatrist about treatment for your anxiety symptoms.

you may benefit from using moisturizers on your skin twice a day as well

you may benefit from anti-anxiety medications after evaluation by your doctor.
