Lymphadenopathy : Unlikely that this is related to your ear infection. Lymphnodes typically drain regional anatomy. If you had a finger/forearm infection, than it would be plausible.

Difficult to know: This is the location for the epitrochlear lymph nodes, but this could just as easily be an epidermal inclusion cyst (sebaceous cyst) or a lipoma (fatty tumor) or something more serious. I would suggest you have it evaluated if you are concerned.
