Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

I am sorry you are having these bite sensations.

can you show me the area on your skin you are worried about

do you have diabetes? this can lead to damaged nerves and diabetic neuropathy.

are you taking ativan? this is to help with excessive anxiety?

bad anxiety symptoms can cause you to be very nervous and can cause itchy skin and scratching as well.
