Welcome to justanswer.I shall be consulting you today.

Certain viral,bacterial and other infections can cause lymphocytosis.

Viral infections and allergies are quite similar in their presentation.

So your lymphocytosis could be due to sinus congestion and infections most likely.This raised lymphocyte number returns to normal once the infection has cleared.

Stress does not cause lymphocytosis.

I hope this answers your question.
