You should take the child to a doctor, but when my son had a lump in an area behind his ear and close by his neck, with fever, he had strep throat. ===ANOTHER ANSWER=== It could also indicate an infection of the sinus system. Have your child seen at a clinic, family doctor or an ENT doctor (ear, nose and throat doctor)

Probably not washing behind your ears. Make sure you wash behind your ears every night with a wash cloth and soap.

Everyone has lumps behind the ears and in the throat areas, as well as, in the head. These lumps are part of the lymph node system and some are just glands. When there is an infection in the body the lymph nodes will swell and be sore. Lymph nodes swell as they trap infection. If the lumps are glands, it could still be infection, but either way it is best to check with a doctor. The information above is actually like true but maybe your child has a loose tooth. Check your child's teeth and see is there a loose tooth if not then go check your doctor.

I think you heard it wrong. There is a phrase "wet behing the ears," which means a novice at something, but nothing about writing behind the ears.

They are checking to see if your glands are swollen, or if you have any lumps below your ears, or if your thyroid is swollen.

The expression "Wet behind the ears" alludes to a new born baby which still has wetness behind the ears and implies that the subject is immature or naive. The phrase originated in the USA in the first decade of the twentieth century.

If its ears are slanted backwards it is listening behind it. When its ears are flat back it is angry or upset.When the ears are just facing backwards, the horse is just listening to something behind it. When the ears are pinned back on the neck, it means the horse is mad or irritated.
