These are lymph nodes which are enlarged.The usual cause is a scalp infection or recent ear infection. Sometimes no cause is found. If the glands are very large then it is best for your daughter to be seen by her doctor.

I also asked a question regarding this...My son has been struggling for more than a year with very big lymph nodes...He is also 3yr old. After several dr's visits everyone tells me that I need to relax...It still bothers me, I'm so glad to see some one else is also struggling with this. His got terrible sinus, I was wondering if this could also cause this....Anyway, hope that you can get an answer...please let me know, because all answer I get, is that this is "normal"...
