Tingling/Whole body itching/Sensations

This has been going on in my life for 6-7 months+ I've lost count of how long it's been here. I wake up constantly at crazy times like 3am-5am unable to sleep, often having to take something to fall asleep again, my whole body tingles all over, it starts at my head and affects my eyes, nose, ears, mouth, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, chest, leg, between my legs even in my anus, it's the most frustrating sensation I have ever felt similar to bugs crawling all over me.

Things I've done

+Blood tests for liver/kidney/anemia etc
+Stool tests
+Fexofenadine/Citirizine combination
+Changed washing power, conditioner
+Bought sheet covers for bugs/bedbugs and cleaned entire house
+Washing in bleach/borax to elimite any kind of skin parasites
+Treated with lyclear cream for scabies (didn't change anything)
+Used diatomaceous earth on sheets and carpets, even taking food grade in case it's a stomach parasite
+using emu oil for skin conditions and also taking multivitamins on top of all the other stuff
+bought brand new allergenic quilts/pillows
+using alergenic shower creams/hair products

I am at my wits end. This is driving me to the point of complete insanity and is honestly destroying my life, I don't feel listened to by my doctor and the only person taking me seriously is my flatmate and another friend who is having similar issues with himself and his little girl. None of us can explain whats going on, I have tried absolutely everything, some people tell me it's an allergy but to what I just don't know and nobody is telling me and frankly it NEVER goes away even if I do everything to wash it off my body so my conclusion it's something to do with nerves being trapped...

If all your medical tests and valuations have turned out to be normal, the your symptoms are more likely to be psychological and not physical.

Consulting a psychiatrist and seeking proper medications would be helpful.
