Default Very itchy hedgehog

Hi! My hedgehog is two years old. Recently he's been really itchy, like frantically scratching himself. I gave him an oatmeal bath which only seems to have made it worse, i washed all his bedding (i only use fleece), i've treated him for mites, i put almond oil on his skin every now and again... I'm at a bit of a loss, he is losing quite a few spikes, there's some bald patches and is making cuts on his back through itching so much. Any ideas?

A couple questions. First, what did you use to treat for mites & how often/many times did you treat? And second, have you gone to the vet to check for skin infections yet?
