The lumps could be lymph nodes. Get her to her pediatrician. Stop the supplements. Give her plain milk and the baby vitamins only. Sometimes children get reactive to proteins. She might be allergic to them. The diaper rash needs proper management too, change it often, use nappy cream and antibiotic powder to dress her. Do not delay visit to her pediatrician.

looks like your baby is suffering from one of the viral fever with ras. It is important to rule our measles, chicken pox etc. I would advise you to visit a pediatrician as soon as possible.
Also rule out various causes of ear infection to rule out the swelling behind the ear. I would advise you to consult a pediatrician in this regard. I hope i have answered your query. Take care
