How do you test for sulfate allergy
What you should know about sulfate allergies
Many drugs contain sulfate, but allergic reactions to sulfate drugs are rare.
When a person with a sulfate allergy comes in contact with drugs that contain the compound, a rash or hives, skin or eye itching, and swelling may occur.
Some people can also experience more severe reactions, such as anaphylaxis and Steven Johnson syndrome. These are medical emergencies.
A person must inform all health care providers of their allergies to ensure they are not receiving any medication that can cause side effects.
A doctor can determine the best course of action. They may recommend an appointment with a specialist for further testing and advice on which drugs and products to avoid.
