Keep having this spasm/twitching right side of head behind ear left of temple, all day. Usually like 2 twitches/spasm each time, wakes me up too..

My daughter (9) has a bump on the right side of head behind her ear. It is solid but goes down sometimes. Not painful are all. Any idea?

For example, an enlarged lymph node behind the ear is frequently caused by an infection somewhere on the scalp (like ringworm) or by irritated or flaky skin (like seborrheic dermatitis or dandruff). If it gets painful, or red or grows, see doc. ...Read moreGet help now ›

I have an inflamation on the lower part of my right side of head & have another round hard inflamation just behind my ear which is painful.Pls explain?
Probable lymph node: I'm not sure exactly where the inflammation is on your head but if it is above and/or behind the ear then the bump behind the ear is probably a lymph node enlarged because it is involved or affected area will drain toward it. Try warm compresses but if continues for more than a few days then may need antibiotics. ...Read moreGet help now ›
