I have had itching for about 4 months after replacing a budgie. The bird has gone but the itching remains. In my bed, I find a few small pin head size black mites? I've tried 20 or so lotions and sprays. After 6 trips my Doctors think I am mad despite pimple size bites on my upper body. My only effective treatments so far are Vicks ointment and tea tree oil diluted 50-50 with baby oil. A cortisone steroid cream makes some sleep possible. I am hoping a sunshine holiday will help. You are not alone or the only one but it is really depressing, irritating.
