Question allergic to antibiotics - an autoimmune connection?

Does anyone know if there is any correlation between having an autoimmune disease (I have hypo) and being allergic to a lot of antibiotics?

Ever since I can remember I've had trouble with antibiotics - all I can take at this point are sulfa drugs, which we even hesitate with. Most common antibiotics cause me to break out in hives, so I'm off of them immediatley.

I'm just wondering if there's any relationship between the two.. it might explain a lot.
