hello I am an ENT specialist and can help you with this. Would you like to chat on this?
this is likely to be due to irritation from the dye
are the knots on the ear itself, ie, on the cartilage, or behind the ear, on the skull?
these are enlarged nodes
the dye has caused irritation of the pinna and also caused enlarged nodes
this is not mumps
best is to see a doctor for this
she may require an antibiotic
for now apply cold sponging to the ear, this will give relief
if you have 1% hydrocortisone ointment, or this can be got OTC from the chemist, apply on the ear, this will bring down the inflammation
usually the nodes should subside in a day or two with this
however, if they persist, or if you notice that they are further enlarging..
or if they become painful, then she has to go to the doctor immediately
even to the ER if necessary
she may need antibiotics
but first you can try with home treatment and monitor for a day
but remember to go to the doctor immediately if symptoms show any signs of getting worse
