: hi, I am allergic to sulfa. What I am wondering is if I should stay away from sulfur, and sulfites which are in wine, and other foods. It seems when I do have a glass of wine, I get some itching on my face, however, nothing compared to the hives I got when I took the sulfa medicine. How could I find more information on how the two are related. I know they use sulfur to make the sulfa medicine.
Hi, I 'm allergic to sulfa also. No, that doesn't mean you can't take sulfur. I have a mild acne problem and some creams contain sulfur. I looked this same question up a couple of weeks ago believe it or not because I didn't want to have the gigantic hives that sulfa gave me. I looked up sulfa using a search engine and a couple of doctors answered my question. By the way, I have been using it one my face for about a week now, and guess what? No hives.
