Not sure if you ever resolved the problem but when I bought my little piglet at 5 weeks, she was itching so badly. I took her to a local vet and he immediately diagnosed her with scabies. I can't remember the medication he put her on as it was 15 years ago, but it took care of the problem right away...not before we all contracted scabies too, unfortunately. We were treated immediately and everyone was 100% soon thereafter.
One additional comment...as a new pig owner, you should know there is no such thing as a micro mini pig. Your baby will continue to grow for 5 years or so. Be careful not to over feed as it will get out of control very quickly. I can highly recommend contacting Susan Magidson at Ross Mill Farm and the Pig Placement Network in Rushland, Pa. She can tell you everything you need to know.
