    Re: What Is The Difference Between Sulfa And Sulfur Meds

    If you are talking about a group of antibiotics known as sulfa drugs, "sulfa" is the appropriate term. "Sulfur" or "sulphur" is sometimes mistakenly used in its place. Sulfur is a nonmetallic element. Sulfa is a synthetic organic compound.
