My grandmother is allergic to sulfate and she was prescribed sulfate potassium kit can she take it?
I'm allergic to sulfa and I'm also allergic to potassium. I suffer extreme rashes from anything containing either. Sulfa and sulfate blister the skin and potassium makes very large burn looking areas. It is best that you take this to your doctor as he is the one who will prescribe the medications. My cardiologist said that if you can see the reactions on your internal skin tissue is far worse and that any skin reaction should not be looked at as topical.
Woodbriar; This is a good way to get to know your pharmacist better they should have these on file with your prescription medications or call your doctor but anyway these you can take follow your doctor's directions you are mixing up Sulfate. with sulfa and these are not related in any way but always ask at the pharmacy when you are buying these medications or other antibiotic in place of sulfa.
