Bright red sore behind ear going upto scalp, ooze oily liquid, dye hair frequently. What could the cause be?

Bright red sore behind ear going up onto scalp , oozing oily liquid. Have had a problem with dry and flaky scalp yet oily hair for 4-5 years. Wash hair once-twice a week maximum. Recently trying (last 2-3 months) dandruff shampoo - not helping. Dyed just front part of hair twice within last 6 months (bangs) but have long hair. Could dye be the problem? No spots anywhere else. Could shampoos/hair-care products be the problem (use minimal of these), Could a liquid body soap cause problems in other places? Other Info: 19 years old Only regular earring piercings (2 in lobe only) over 10 years old. Rash on legs and arms that has been ongoing for over 1 year which we believe was the laundry soap as seems to be slowly healing now that we ve gone to baby laundry detergent. Patient is allergic to naproxen , and wasp stings. Makes me think allergies.
