I am allergic to pistachios, but I can't eat raw sunflower seeds or raw almonds? Are those allergies?
Most likely, yes:
Pistachios and almonds are both tree nuts and can cross react with other tree nuts like cashews, walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts and all of them should be avoided.
Sunflower seeds are not treenuts and usually do not cross react with treenuts. However, if you have adverse reactions whenever you eat them, they should be avoided as well. ...Read more
Can you eat too many nuts? I eat about a cup of raw peanuts and almonds a day. I'm not overweight so the calories are okay.

Probably not: Links between diet and acne are poorly understood and probably minor. Of the common foods, dairy is most likely to have something to do with acne -- I was surprised to learn that chocolate has been exonerated by some controlled studies. The key is that you can manage acne (though not cure it). If 5% topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your physician. ...Read more
