Allergy to sulfa drugs is a popular term for related medications. Once allergic: sulfites, nickel and even tea laurel sulfate (found in soaps, shampoos, etc.), can cause irritation or an allergic response. I have this allergy and over the years I have become quite allergic and have had to change shampoo, body wash, soap and so forth. No plated metals due to blistering. Also, they used to have a product that was used in salads to keep the lettuce fresh and it was widely used in restaurants. I would become ill with shooting diarrhea. A national law was passed during the 90's to no longer use this product because of the large number of people becoming ill.
Therefore, I suggest that anyone with an allergy to a sulfa medication, will find themselves allergic to the items above. Shampoo is the best to change out as I had thought I had itchy scalp and dandruff but it disappeared after buying sulfate free products.
Sulphur is the chemical on the periodic table. It is in all living creatures.
