Default Mite help

I took my hedgehog Buster into the vet over a month ago (presidents day) and got him on a 6 week treatment of Revolution. The vet couldn't find any mites on his from the scraping, but we decided to treat him just incase. He still has decent quill loss today, and still has very bald spots. I can see new quills growing in constantly, but it doesn't seem fast enough for his bald spots to go away. Are the quills falling out just damaged from the mites? Is it supposed to take this long before he can fully grow them back?

If there are mites, then yes, the quills coming out are probably just the ones they damaged. The fact there are new quills coming in is a good sign. I would think for there to be bald spots the infestation would have had to be pretty bad and been going on for a good bit. Could you post pictures? I wonder if there's something else going on if you're seeing bald spots.

You can see alot of new quills growing in but there is still substantial quill loss. I will add a picture of how many tomorrow morning.
