What causes swollen lymph node while having stye in eyes?

Hi, I got a stye in my eyes 20 days ago and it didn t drain. After 3 days i got my lymph node swollen in front of my earlobe. After 12 days i got strep throat which is doing good now. But the lump is not going. I went to 4 physician and everyone is saying its a strep throat or ear infection. i want to know is it related to stye. There is no pain in my swollen lymph node but sometimes it feel warm. there is also some loss in my appetite. Please help me. I am in depression because of this. Thanks
