Brief Answer:
Allergy shots causing Lymph node enlargment

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns.

You are concerned about lymph node enlargement while taking allergy shots. These lymph nodes are more than likely a result of the shots. Since you are purposely injecting your body with a substance that you are known to react to the lymph nodes will enlarge. Lymph nodes are the center of antibody production so the body is still trying to fight off your allergen. Instead of having hives or allergic reaction you get low levels of antibodies and no reaction. As you build this tolerance the lymph nodes will shrink

In summary
1. Lymph node enlargement due to increase antibody product from injections
2. Will reduce as your body reacts less to the allergen

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
