Itchy and losing hair along neck

My horse was rubbing himself and losing hair along his neck, and he had small lumps in the area as well. It was becoming severe with the skin being broken and some infection also present.
Solution:
My vet diagnosed Onchocerciasis, which is an allergy to a larval form of a worm that horses can get. We have to control biting insects as well, stable him at night and put on a light rug. We also wormed him with Equest to kill the worms.
