I am being bothered by some biting burrowing mite. Recent blood work has proved that I have a fungal infection in my blood and auto immune disease. I also had a skin scraping and toenail clipping come back positive for mold, so I have a fungal mold infection on my scalp and skin as well. These came out of/off my scalp. They're the size of a tiny Speck in and the image was taken with a microscope attachment for my phone.

I could not tell what was in the photos. If you think that the problem is mites, you need to take a sample to your local county extension office. They will probably not have anyone there capable of ID, but can sent to specialists on the state level that can ID the pest if it is a mite. You can find the location of your nearest office here:
