Eczema or contact

this can be either eczema or contact dermatitis. Do you color your hair? see a dermatologist or allergist. You may need to have a patch test to rule out contact allergies. Any itchy rashes any where else can indicate eczema.

Lump on back of neck below hairline on the right side. Causes?

Different options

Neck
That area has a lot of things in it both in the skin and below it. Sweat glands, hair follicles and skin cysts as well as lymph nodes, fatty tissue, vessels, muscles and other things. Is the lump growing, inflamed, painful, painless, draining, recurrent or constant, moveable or fixed...? Each of these (and many more) will provide your doc the answers as to what it is and what needs to be done.
