Default Cheyleteilla mite -HELP!

Hi cat fans! I have a huge problem -for such a tiny creature -has anyone ever experienced this Cheyletiella mite? It is also called "walking dandruff", it is pronounced ky-la-til-ya. My kitty has it and I cannot seem to get rid of it no matter what I use. My vet only gave her an injection for scratching and placed Advantage on her neck. He then said "get some Seven Dust and fly strips". He had me enter and exit out of a side door and acted like he didn't want to see us. This mite is very contageous and usually cats do not become infested, but she has and now I have them also, just like lice (in my hair.) I have researched so much and seems this mite is not well known...as far as how to get rid of it forever. I have Adams products, lime sulfur dip, Diatemeceous Earth, other off brand shampoo's, flea powder, pyrithrin products......I'm wondering if this is another bug? I have been dealing with this 3 months now. I had a flood downstairs so ended up moving everything out of the house to redo flooring up and downstairs. I have cleaned walls, ceilings...just so much. I cannot work until this is gone, I cannot spend much time in public. I cannot find any help with this mite. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!!! Jamielee and Lillie Kitty.

Oh my! I wish I could help, but I have never heard of this either!
Is there a vet school or large clinic in your area? How about feline specialty?
I would, certainly, get a second opinion.
Please be careful trying too many different things, cats have died from exposure to some chemicals.
Please keep us updated, you may save someone else much grief!
I will be praying for the two of you and asking around.
