Dermatitis
Get someone to check you for nits; lice like to bite in that area. If not that, could be seborrheic dermatitis.

Itchy rash on back of neck and in hairline also on lower back?

Itchy back

Rash
You might be allergic to your shampoo or another hair care product. Without a medical exam it would be difficult to say. Consider using only a non sensitizing shampoo such as Free and Clear and avoid other treatments. If that doesn't work seek out a board certified allergist or dermatologist.

I have an itchy red rash in + around both ears, has spread to hairline/neck, and now have small pea size lump behind ear, what could this be?

Rash

The small lump may just be a swollen lymph nodes. But a more specific answer probably requires a dermatologist to look at the rash. Does not sound like a contact dermatitis

There are many types and causes of skin rashes. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Itchy bumps at back of neck near hairline losing hair what could this be? Could it be sebhorreic dermatitis?

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.
