Hey folks, here's a tip that will help a lot. Get a cheap lens off ebay and have a look at it under the magnification. I think you need at least 40x to see the legs.
You can then take a photo with your camera phone and post it here.
Here's one that I pulled out of my back. It was hard to take out, requiring tweezers. One of them came out alive and was pretty rapid!:

I am not sure if this is related to a possible headlice problem I have. On the one hand I have been battling the headlice for a month now but only have been able to find the eggs and never caught one in the act. They feel like there is a bump where it itches. I think it's possible they have been forced off my head and onto my back? On the other hand this pictured mite was found when I moved back into an old room and I can hear rats in the walls so it could be unrelated. In any case I'm going to thehairforce.co.uk to get checked as the doctors weren't interested in helping.
Hope this helps folks!
Looks like a rodent mite they love your hair. I would look up rodent mites online.

If you have the mite between two microscope slides you really need to get it to a MD so your sample can be sent to a lab for ID and to validate that you have a skin parasite that merits medical treatment. Once you've done that get a referral from your primary care MD for a Infectious Disease doctor and get treatment. Your treatment should be based on how long you've been infected. The longer you've been infected the more aggressive the treatment. If you've already done rounds of oral ivermectin with topical Permethrin then ask to be prescribed Albendazole tablets, 410mg every 12 hours for 30 days. You will also need a script for Amoxicillin 500mg as needed (20 caps) for subsequent bacterial infections when the Albendazole kills all the mites. You take the pills to continue killing the new born mites hatching from eggs in burrows dug deep in your skin. It takes up to 30 days to wipe out all mite generations. If you've been infected longer than 4 months urge the infectious disease doc to go the Albendazole route. I was cured that way.
