Little scratches???

My son is 16 months old and today I noticed that the back of his head had tiny little scratches on it. He has never had cradle cap but has small patches of eczema on his ankles. I'm wondering what this could be! They look like little kitten scratches on the back of his head. His hair has just started to grow (he was bald until about 13 months) so I'm wondering if this has any impact on his scalp itching.
This last 20 days he has been on antibiotics due to a double ear infection. This was his first time with any sickness and his first time on any antibiotic. He was on amoxicillin for the first 10 days and they had to switch him to a stronger antibiotic. Could this be a late reaction to the stronger antibiotic?
Thanks in advance!
