Hi, so i was wondering if anybody has seen this before or has any idea of what it could be. My mum started to feel her head itching around Christmas time and saw some insects in her head at the start of January. She eventually went to the GP who gave her some headlice treatment as she was combing some out, really big ones aswell. She tried numberous treatments that the GP gave her although none of these worked. This led to pest control coming over who found harvest mites in the property and defumigated the house. I have done some research and nothing comes up with them living on just the hair so not convinced it is them. The GP then said he is unsure what to do so advised she go pay privately to a dermatologist who looked and said he could not see any (by this time the insects were reduced) and my mum thought she was fine. last week they have now started to hatch again and she has fresh bites on her head. She has had this for about 5 weeks now and she is really down and does not know where to turn. i have included some pictures of the insects if anybody could help with advice or information would be really grateful. many thanks Dan.
