Yes, I'd take him to the vet for a mite-check and a skin scraping. If any of the quills have skin tags attached, bag 'em and bring them with you for easier analysis. If you suspect a skin infection, stop with the oil because it can make things worse. Not entirely sure of the symptoms for a skin infection, but I think maybe redness?
