What about a bacteria infection? Did doc dismiss the possibility? I ask because one of my first developed a staph infection in his skin. He dropped quills like made and by the time we found the right antibiotic to treat it (it resisted the first antibiotic), my little one was pretty much bald on his back. For him his back looks pretty normal, except we would see a tiny pocket of pus (looked like a tiny zit) form around the base of the quills, when the pocket would pop the quill would fall out. Otherwise there was no flaking or redness.

We had a bacteria culture ran on him. Doc did the culture in house and we had results within a day or two of doc taking a sample.

Just something else to consider if it hasn't been ruled out.
