Feeling like bugs crawling on my body. Treatment?

Resolved Question:

I have tiny microscopic bugs that are crawling on my body. They do not bite or leave a rash. I can just feel them. I do have a video I took of one of them but am not sure I can send it. I do not know what it is for nothing has changed around my house. They do not itch or anything I can just feel something crawling and I put a powerful light on that area and I can see these tiny bugs.

Thank you for your query at

I have reviewed the video, and I could see a tiny insect crawling.
You need to immediately get rid of them. These kind of insects can appear due to any minute change in the surrounding like change in weather, or rain, e.t.c
Try to have a good insect spray in the house, which can be spread at the potential sites of entry, thereby blocking further insects from coming. They can leave very tiny bites which you may not be aware off. So, you need to be a little vigilant in finding the source of entry and block it immediately.
Hope this was helpful,

Patient replied :

thanks for the response but I still don't know what kind of bugs they are. The video was zoomed in for they are so small you cannot see without zooming in. I need to know so I can look them up? They are all on my skin and I see them on my iPhone and iPad because of the light. Are they contagious?

I am not sure what kidn of insects they are. However, I have seen these bugs around.
You need to get rid of them, that's all I can suggest.
The mosquito repellent cremes will work to keep these bugs away, or you can get a nice repellent spray too.

Patient replied :

They are on the bed the sofa. The windows are closed. I have no pets and nothing has changed in my life. I am bald and totally groomed so there is no lice. I need to get rid of them not just kill what I can find. They are mostly on my arms neck and face. I don't really feel them on my legs. I am looking at my cell phone as I type this and I can see a bunch on the phone. To kill them I have to use my nail and they give a little crack. They are not like a flea where they jump and have a hard back but it is firm. They are all over and infested with them. Could they be dust mites.

They could be dust mites, hard to comment on it looking at the image but it needs to be eliminated from the house.
This can cause significantly bad allergies too.
You can take the help of some pest control firm in your locality.
