Default Black Spots

Anybody have issues with these black spots? He has them on his nose, ears, and tail. I took him to the vet for what I thought was mites and also brought up this issue and she didn't really have an idea besides maybe it was related to mites. He got these spots about a month after I got him and haven't come off with a bath. He also has matted crusty scabby stuff to the right of his left eye and he got that a little before the spots. Is this some sort of skin infection? I'm really worried that no one knows what this is!

I'm not sure what it is & it doesn't look like anything I've seen before. But I would get him checked out for skin infections, just in case.
