It could possibly be allergies. An allergy can cause the inner ear to become inflammed and sore and cause him to shake his head. He may also have a foreign body down there other than mites. Going to your vet is your best bet--glad you're doing that--because itchy ears can be highly annoying, not to mention painful.

Unless a vet had ruled out mites you don;t know for sure there are none. It could also be an infection. A vet needs to examine the ears to determine the cause.
