Rash back of neck?

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.

Dr. Michael Miller answered:

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.
