Dear Kate,
It sounds like infection, but you need a proper checkup in terms of evaluation of white spots as some white spots can be hiding malignancy but commonly they are infection. Also lump behind the ear could be enlarged nodes. I feel you need to be seen by a doctor and probably need antibiotics and or antifungals. Are you diabetic? Do you smoke? These information will help as well. Take care
