Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
High fever in infants often indicates an infection. Lumps that appear behind your baby's ears may also be related to this infection. Some possible infections that can cause a high fever and a lump behind the baby's ear are:
Ear infections, such as otitis externa, otitis media Mastoiditis (infection of the spinal ear) Skin infections around the ears, head, or neck Lymphadenitis (lymph node infections) Respiratory tract infections, for example rhinosinusitis, tonsillopharyngitis, etc. In addition to infections, there may also be complaints from children You arise due to immunization side effects, immune disorders, malignancies, and so on. The appearance of a dent in the baby's eye can occur due to infection, or it could be due to allergies or irritation to the eye, to nasolacrimal duct obstruction (which connects the tear glands to the nasal cavity).
If your baby has a fever that lasts only 1 to 3 days, you can first do the following steps:
Breastfeed the baby ONLY ASI AS MUCH AS MUCH AS MUCH ASSESS Physical contact skin to skin with the baby Keep the baby's skin clean, especially the ear area Clean the rays that come out of the baby's eyes using a clean tissue that does not contain fragrance Do not squeeze or gouge lumps behind the baby's ears Do not also scratching baby's ears carelessly compress the baby's neck, armpits, and groin with warm water Give the baby comfortable and warm clothing
Hope this helps ...
