Hi. I think that any substance that should not be in your lungs can count as an infiltrate. But here is some other info ive found, i dont you should be worried, but if you are there is always CT scan.

Reticular (small lines) nodular (small spots) infiltrates can be seen with a large variety of diseases including scars (from previous pneumonia or previous tuberculosis), infection, interstitial lung disease, or cancer. The first step is to obtain old x-rays to see if the abnormality has been present for at least 2 years; if so, then active infection or cancer is very unlikely. A CT scan can help clarify the nature of the infiltrate. In the upper lobe, previous tuberculosis is a particular concern and so many physicians will order a TB skin test as part of the initial evaluation as well.
