Losing hair on ears

I have a cat, who is approx. 5 yrs old.  Over the last week, i have noticed he is losing hair on his ears.  I am not sure if this is related, but I also find large scabs on the back of his neck, i am not sure if it is from excessive scratching (as i never see him do it).  Would the two be related and why would he be losing hair only on his ears?

It could be scratching from ear mites. Check kitty's ears and see if there's an unusual amount of wax, especially if it's crusted and black.

The other option is mange (well, easy option). If the ears are clean, you can try an over the counter human athlete's foot cream on the affected areas.
