This is Dr. David

sorry you are feeling this crawling sensation.

it can be due to thyroid hormone imbalance

or severe dry skin.

severe anxiety symptoms or OCD can make you feel like you feel like you have something crawling on your face.

abnormal thyroid levels can cause dry skin. as we get older, the skin can get drier

you might need to use thick moisturizers on your skin to help severe dry skin.

are you male or female?
