Please attach a picture of the lump for review
Thanks for sharing
Is it painful?
Since how long you have this lump?
Have you used any hair dye?
Thanks for the details
This look like a folliculitis
The lump around ear lobe is an enlarged lymph node due to the head problem
You need to use an anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen and an antibiotic like Co-Amoxiclav or Flucloxacillin
This will settle in a week approximately
Please do let me know if you have any other question
Have you received the answer?
Yes but till then you can apply Savlon cream and take Ibuprofen
