Swollen Lymph node due to drug reaction or infection?

I was diagnosed with Molluscum in my genital area a couple months ago. I got rid of most of it by Cyrotherapy from a dermatologist and extracting the core with a tweeter on my own. Recently it spread again I think due to missing one that was left un-treated. I started taking 5 250mg Peak Immune 4 pills a day which is a product that is supposed to triple your NK-3 cells and boost your white blood cells. I'm also taking Bactim due to having irritation at the tip of my penis. All my tests have come back negative for STD's so my Urologist thinks it could be prostititis. Since I started taking the Peak Immune 4 I've had a really dry mouth that I cant get rid of. Today I noticed that my lymph node near the site of the Molluscum in my groin area is swollen. I want to know if this could be a drug reaction or possibly a result of having an increased white blood cell count in my body due to taking the Peak Immune 4. I read somewhere that your lymph node swells due to a lot of white blood cells accumulating at that area in order to fight off something. I did have sex recently with a random girl recently but I used a condom.

I know its not possible to tell why its swollen but I just would like to know if a virus can cause the same lymph node to swell up on 2 different occasions. It swelled up when I first contacted it and then now that is has spread again.

Also I read that because molluscum doesn't affect the blood its takes rather long for your body to fend it off. Is it possible that by taking immune boosters such as Peak Immune 4 it has caused my body to recognize and react to it? Or do lymph nodes only swell when there is a new infection/bacteria/virus that it comes in contact with?

Nodes swell for different reasons, normally indiated white blood cell production
