creeps

A symptom of decompression sickness in which there is itching and tingling of the skin. Also, the skin feels hot and cold. Sometimes, a skin rash or irritation in the eyes also may take place. This is caused by the evolution of nitrogen gas in the blood and body tissues as a result of the effects of reduced atmospheric pressure on the body.
