She has got like 3 knots/bumps behind her ear and the inside of it is scabby/bloody. I hope this is nothing serious!! She says the knots hurt too.

I get those sometimes, I think..
does she have pierced ears?
Nope, her ears arent pierced. This is like the top of her ear(inner) and then the knots are actually behind her ear....
Helen I am taking her in about 10 minutes....
Good luck at the Doc's office!
There are lymph nodes ("posterior auricular nodes") behind the ear that can feel like "bumps" or "knots", esp. if enlarged. They can be tender if they're fighting infection; for example, if the scabby area on the top inner ear is slightly infected.
