Nuts could be the problem…

If you think you may have strep throat, recurrent acute bacterial tonsillitis, or even acid reflux, ask yourself this: do you eat a lot of nuts?

If so, you could actually have fever blisters, which are caused by a type of virus. Nuts contain high levels of arginine, and if you eat too many of them, the levels of arginine in your body can surpass the lysine levels. And when these amino acids are out of balance, it can make you more susceptible to viral infections.

If this is the case, you should try to cut out nuts from your diet and see if it improves your condition.
