I Need Opinions Regarding My Hair Loss Situation

About three months ago, I started noticing that I am losing a lot of hair. I am a 22-year-old man and consider myself quite healthy (I lift weights almost every day and walk a lot on weekends since I am a waiter).

Putting all this aside, I started noticing significant hair loss when I run my hand through it or shake it. Here are some pictures. All photos were taken with flash. Due to this, I decided to take measures and bought the following shampoos attached images. I would like to highlight (in case it's not clear in the image) that the fallen hair is thinner and weaker at the root. I would also like to mention that I haven't seen any "bald spots" or noticeable hair loss when comparing my current state to previous years.

Ear canal spot/cyst

The glands on one side of my neck are huge and painful and comes with an awful ear ache. I got out the trusty ear camera and took this snap. Is this purple spot something to be concerned about? Pain is less today than it was yesterday but still quite bad. I'm currently on flucloxacillin for an unrelated skin infection.

Why is it that the hyperpigmentation-fading effects of hydroquinone are temporary but those of lasers are tauted to be permanent? Are the effects of lasers really permanent?

Had this removed three years ago- back and bigger, what is it?

Under right eye. Had this show up around 5 years ago and had it removed 3 years ago. Unfortunately never got results of biopsy back so assumed it's nothing malignant. A year after getting it removed, it started growing back and now it's bigger than it originally ever was, and it looks like it keeps expanding. It is raised, but not painful nor itchy etc. I spent 12+ years living in a sunny country for context but moved back to Scandinavia recently. Age 28.

What is this ring-shaped bump on my forehead?

I've had it for about 24 hours or so. It's very slightly raised and doesn't hurt when I touch it.

Eczema?

Please help! I have been suffering from constant itching and tingling for months following a uti/yeast infection/bv across the outer part of my vagina, inner thighs and butt. Also have been having bouts of folliculitis, which I’m unsure if that can be related to dry skin. I have tested negative for all STDs the last 5 months.

Does this resemble eczema and how can I finally get relief??? My drs have refused to acknowledge this is a rash, or claim they see no rash, though to me it seems obvious.

Thank you!!
