    What is the exact cause of swollen lymph nodes? According to a various amount of sources (practically all of them), it is because you have an infection.
    My lymph nodes in front of my neck (under my jaw) are always swollen, especially when I am suffering from my dust mite allergy. Now I notice that the right lymph node on the back of my neck is swollen. It also hurts.
    Anyone with the same symptoms?

    As far as I understand, lymph nodes not only swell if you’ve got an actual infection, but also if your body thinks it has an infection.

    In your case, your dust-mite allergy (better put: your allergy for one or more of the excrements of the dust mite) is caused by your body over-reacting to these excrements. Your body fights those excrements as if they were bacteria or viruses. The body does this by activating all kind of immune cells to attack this “enemy”.

    It’s the activation of your immune system that causes your allergic symptoms, as well as the swelling of you lymph nodes. As far as your body is concerned, there is no difference between an actual infection and an “infection” with dust-mite excrements.

    Yes, but now my lymph nodes on the back of my head are swollen.
    This has never happened before. So, I’m just curious if someone has the same symptom.

    How do you feel now, compared to previous times when your lymph nodes were swollen?

    I mean, would it be possible that you just have a more severe immune reaction than before?

    Strange.

    All I can think of is that your immune system is doing a better job this time than previous times.
