1. There are many different species of bird mites. In order to control them, they have to be identified by a certified entomologist that specializes in Acarids. Not a pest control guy an not even a regular Doctor. It is important to do this, because chances are 99.9% of the time it's not mites or even an insect.
2. Most mites are visible to some extent with the human eye. If you can't see them with a magnifying glass, even a cheap one from the dollar store, 99.9% of the time it's not a mite or even an insect.
3. Spraying any pesticide without a proper diagnosis of the species is dangerous to your health and illegal in many states.
4. Most skin conditions are the result of dry skin or some irritation caused either by an allergic reaction to food, drugs, etc.
We have a good page that discusses this here - http://www.epestsupply.com/bugs-insec...
If you see an insect that you think is a mite, use a piece of scotch tape and lightly pat it and capture it. Then look at it under a magnifier. If it doesn't have 8 legs, it's not mite. Google mites to see what they look like.
I know this is not what you wanted to hear, but there is no answer for something that you can't see.
