Would a Scotsman who's talking about something that really annoys him, say that it gets under his skin?

Rep points to anyone who affirms that it would work or offers an idiomatic expression that does the same job.

"Gets (right) up my nose" is a good middle ground between "gets on my tits" and "really bugs me" in the Scottish contexts I've encountered.

"Does my head in" would be another one.
