Pediatrician 's  Response
Lumps around ear and back of neck suggest a chronic infection of local skin or glands…
At times it can be pediculosis,otitis,tuberculosis.
In view of cough and paless… I would need a serious evaluation for malnutrition, growth failure and tuberculosis.

Including weight height xray and cbc report. Please follow up with same.
