Thanks for writing in HCM.
The lesions behind ear can be intertrigo.It is a mix bacterial+fungal infection.
A combination cream with antibiotic antifungal and steroid may be helpful.
Brown dots can be seborrheic keratoses or Pityriasis versicolor a fungal infection.
A visit to dermatologist will allow proper diagnosis and treatment of both.
