Bird mite infestation

Asked October 16, 2014, 4:09 PM EDT

I have been suffering from bird mites for three years (unknowingly). I went to doctor after doctor and they just shook their heads and said they didn't know what was causing my lesions and bites. Recently I caught several bird mites in my bed and had Orkin come, confirm the problem, sprayed and now they are coming out of the woodwork (figuratively--or not) but also, out of me. I have been finding egg-looking gel in my nose, under my skin and am getting bit more ruthlessly than before. Will they just die off in time or do I need to get a medication, salve or soap to get them off and out of my body? Please help.
