I have not been able to find much info about sulfur allergy on the net. Well, here is my story, I am sorry of I ramble.
About 5 years ago I had a UTI and was given Bactrim to cure it. After taking 3 doses (as prescribed) I was sore all over my body. I felt as if I had been beaten from head to toe. I was also running a fever. I stopped taking the meds and it took a month or longer to get out of my system.
About a year ago, I started working in a hospital. After we went "Latex Free", we started using purple Nitrile gloves. A few months after using the Nitrile gloves, my right arm started to hurt. I could not lift my arm more than 6 inches or my bone felt as if it was going to break. I thought it was bursitis. Then my knees became sore to bend and walk up and down stairs, again, I said it was because of sports in high school and weight gain. Finally, my fingers and wrists became very sore and I was planning a trip to the doc to be checked for arthritis. A friend told me to use glove liners and then I googled "What is Nitrile" and came up with the answer that Nitrile is vulcanized using, you guessed it, SULFUR.
I spoke with my manager and I was given special PVC gloves and I no longer have that problem, except...............
I was using an in-shower body lotion when, after 3 days, my knees started hurting again. I quickly stopped using the product and the symptoms went away.
Now, the info I have found about Sulfur allergies all indicate another allergy and not specifically to sulfur. I am putting Sulfur at the top of my "Stay Away From" list.
I hope this helps someone else!
