Default dry flaky ears and quill loss

So my hedgehog has been the king of skin problems since we got him. He is now almost a year old but has run through about 1,400$ in vet bills. Right after he was done quilling he developed mites and then from that got some very odd skin infection that no vet could diagnose, it wasn't fungal but antibiotics also weren't helping. OLIVE OIL was the only thing that cured it, and they were these huge brown scabs uprooting his quills and taking his skin off with them. Now he is finally all better from that but has had a lot of quill loss the past month, like taking him out last night about 10 quills fell off of him and i don't think thats normal, but he also doesn't have any bald patches and isn't scratching, and his head and ears are also very dry so I use olive oil at least once a week (no where else on his body has dry skin). And I just doubt he has mites again we've gotten him a new cage, switched foods, use fleece bedding now, it just doesn't make much sense.
