URGENT:       Tiny White Flying Parasite  vs. Insect

Can you refer me to an ectoparasitologist who collects samples?  If you
don’t know one, please check around with your colleagues and associates.
People are contracting a tiny white parasite from clothing of retail stores
or other sources.  This pest is neither a mite nor a flea.  Because it's
airborne and breeds really fast, it's extremely difficult to control and get
read of.   I’ve discovered one other parasite victim.   I’ve been told other
victims exist.  I contracted this pest via clothing at Value City.  It has
been a nightmare experience!
We've tried RID, Kleen Free Enzymes, and various pesticide sprays.  I've
sprayed like crazy EVERY day.  I even spray my clothing with RID.  I wash my
hair every night. Yet I'm still seeing this pest.  The other victim had a
worse case, and she’s pleased with the Kleen Free product.  I use it daily,
but I haven’t seen any lasting results.
Please pay close attention as I describe the physical attributes and
symptoms of this pest.  If someone has this pest, they will see 3 types of
white things:
1) tiny round things about the size of a spec of salt
2) tiny, oblong shaped, things that look like a piece of thread or fiber; 
about 1/16 of an inch long
3) slightly larger white things that jump
Either #2  and/or  #3  flies;  It is an airborne pest.
Optional:   Victims may see tiny black things the same as item # 1 and # 2
If someone has this pest, they will have the following physical symptoms:
1) Bites that sting
2) Red skin rashes  and/or  small red bumps
3) Lighting sensations;   Victims will feel something periodically lighting
on their skin.
4) Optional:   Itching  **I don’t itch, but another victim has an itching
Pest Habits:
When hand-picked from hair, clothing, etc.,  the pest will attack with
bites.  This tiny white pest can be found anywhere.  Once it gets in an
environment, it will be all over the place.  It likes clothing, hair, and
dark colored items.   The #1 and #2 white things rest on material and
non-material items.  ie, a totebag or pocketbook   They’ll infest someone’s
car, also. 
Pest Control---I haven't yet found a pesticide that completely removed the
pest and its eggs.  Over a period of weeks, constant spraying can yield a
reduction in pest population.  Due to the fast breeding, the infestation
does not go away.  This is a relentless pest!
Entomologists have not been able to identify samples sent to them. 
Therefore, this pest is not an insect.  It's either a parasite or arthropod. 
Presently, I'm trying to find an ectoparasitologist to submit samples to.  I
need the scientific name for this pest.  If you have time to help me do
research, that would be helpful.
I’d greatly appreciate hearing from you at your very earliest convenience. 
Thanks for your time and assistance.

P.S. (If anyone has contracted this pest, they can write me directly at:    
twfparasite(at)yahoo(dot)com        (Use the "at" symbol and period.)
