What causes a red itchy rash behind the ear?

Hello, i am a male and have a rash on my neck/behind my ear that is red, partially itchy and sometimes is dry but sometimes is just red and bumpy and also irritated and the same rash on my eyelid. I went to a doctor, he prescribed vaseline/aveeno which did not work. I went back and am being referred to a dermatologist but that is a few months and I would like some help thanks.

Hello,

As a first line management, you can apply low potency steroid for symptomatic relief.

If symptoms persist better to consult a dermatologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
