Hello and welcome!
I am no expert with parasites but do you think it could be mites?
Here is the Guinea Lynx page about it:
I think a vet visit is in order. Hopefully someone else will come along soon with other ideas!
He could well have mites or lice, but I think a vet visit is in order since he has foot and ear problems also.

But once you get him straightened out, you can treat for mites or lice yourself if you ever need to again.
