Bird shaking head and itching ears

This sounds more like an inner ear infection or something. Who treated the bird for mites? Unless an avian vet prescribed treatment, the treatment was likely toxic, please be careful with over the counter treatments that are just poison.

You can't treat what you don't know is wrong, and you can't get a diagnosis or treatment without seeing an avian vet.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
