Hello and hope you are doing well.

The bumps you feel near the ear could be lymph nodes. Lymph are protective mechanisms of the body and they 'trap' the infecting source causing enlargement of lymph nodes. The infection can be from the draining skin or the organs. Is there any rash at the back of your neck? If there is rash this could cause the lymph node to enlarge which you feel as bumps. The lymph nodes could also be due to the tooth infection. As the infection subsides, they should resolve. If they persist consult your doctor for an evaluation.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
