I have to avoid all sulfites in foods and meds. Does anyone else have a problem with them? I'm hoping to find someone else who has the same problem.. not that I'd wish this on anyone, but I need someone to share ideas with and need to know what they're eating that's ok.

Sorry, I am allergic to sulfa drugs but that is it.

I am too. Drs tell me they're two different things though. I'm happy you replied though because I didn't expect to get any replies at all. I just figured I'd throw my post out there in hopes i found a fellow sufferer.

I only suspect that I have problems with it--I can't drink wine or beer during allergy season b/c of it, unless they have no sulfites. I've not really noticed any other reactions to foods, though one night after a Lion's Club dinner I got this really weird reaction--I broke out all in hives and then had diarrhea and then I was fine. I have no idea what was in the food though since it was homecooked and stuff I'd eaten before.

Yep, I used to take Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate (did nothing) and I think that it being a sulfate is what gave me the crummy allgergic reaction.

Hello, I have just come across this forum whilst searching for any information at all about allergic reactions to sulphites.

In the last few years I have come to realise (by process of elimination) that I can't drink Chilean wine. Apparently Chilean wine contains sulphites which bring me out in a terrible rash (or hives as it's usualy caused on most websites) on my chest and neck, but nowhere else thank goodness, that's bad enough! The rash I get is small individual red spots which feel hard, I have no itching and the spots do not group together.

Obviously, I now avoid Chilean wine at all times, but unfortunately forgot to check last week and ended up drinking two glasses of wine and soda. I can only assume it was Chilean wine I drank that night as I had the worst reaction to-date....the rash is only just about gone after 7 days (usually lasts 3/4 days) and I think I may have had some minor swelling of my windpipe too, which I have never had before.

Does any of this sound familiar?

As far as allergic reaction goes, yes. The chances of an increasingly bad reaction are high. You need to be extremely careful as you could have anaphylactic shock (I know that's not spelled correctly, just fuzzy this a.m.) next time and die if not sent to ER immediately.
