  • Infection causes lymph node enlargement.....so.....if you have been scratching at your head, you may have infected areas on your scalp; you may have caused some infection in your external ear. Or you could have any of a number on non-scalp-related infections including your mouth, throat, teeth, ear, or even face or neck that would cause the lymph nodes to enlarge. Treat the dandruff and see a dr if the lymph node remains swollen
