Swelling at the bottom of the ear can be caused due to various causes. From the situation that your sister is experiencing, a lump appears under the ear accompanied by fever may be caused by a lymphadenitis. Lymphadenitis is a condition where there is enlargement and inflammation of the lymph nodes. Normal lymph nodes are in the area around the neck and around under the ear. Lymphadenitis of the neck area often occurs, for example, when a child has a throat infection, and usually lymphadenitis will also disappear if the throat infection has disappeared. Lymphadenitis can cause symptoms such as lumps appearing around the neck, lumps are soft and can be moved, and can be accompanied by pain.
But other than that your sister's situation can also be caused by other causes such as:
TB infection, abscess gland preauricular cyst fistula, therefore, to ascertain the cause of your sister's condition, then your brother should check directly to the doctor, so the doctor can check the condition of your sister directly and provide appropriate therapy. Do not take any drugs.
You can do a warm compress on the lump. Avoid exposure to smoke and dust. Give enough water and nutritious food to your sister.
