What causes lump on the ear with pink eye?

Hi, I went to see the nurse practitioner yesterday who said I had pink eye. He gave me eye drops. This is day 2 no improvement. On the same side, I just found a lump near front of ear lob near jaw line. Could this all be related? Some type of infection?

Hi,
From history it seems that you might be having conjunctivitis giving this problem.
Due to infection there might be having pre-auricular lymph node enlargement.
you might require one course of oral antibiotic medicine.
Put antibiotic eye drops every 2-3 hourly.
Ok and take care.
