I just read jellybelly's article listed here today about chocolate & nuts feeding mycoplasma bacteria. Please check it out. In the article it states: "A near-certain signal (you have mycoplasma infection) is the "crimson crescents" that mark the disease. These red patches appear on either isde of the throat behind the molars in front of the tonsils." Does anyone know how accurate this information is? Can you have "crimson crescents" from any other cause like a virus or something? I'm thinking I may need to get some expensive testing done but I don't want to do it for nothing. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
