What causes swollen lymph node under the ear?

Swollen lymph node under ear. Had a black spot on ear lobe the morning after I got into moving some brush. Scraped it out and it left a small hole now infected and lymph node bulging. Not sure what it is but I did get into poison ivy and it itches.thx

hello thank you for writing us here.
its most possibly due to infection. would suggest you to take antibiotics for 3 days. azithromycin 500mg would do good. you'll be alright at the enf of the course.

best regards,
Dr Gunjan
