Dry skin behind ears, cradle cap, scabs, ear infection, bleeding behind ears. Is it serious?

My 3 month old has dry skin behind his ears, it looks like craddle cap almost but there is also some scabs as well. He has had this for a while but he also has had an ear infection for at least 3 weeks but I dont know if that is related or not. Any ideas on if it is just dry skin or something more serious since there has been some bkeeding behind tge ears.
