My daughter was recently put on a Sulfa drug for a bladder infection. She developed wheezing (she was diagnosed with asthma but both docs we saw felt that the wheezing was allery related and not necessarily asthma related??) Her inhalers weren't working and we ended up in ER. We see our GP at the end of the month and also have an appt. with the allergist soon, as well.

I stumbled across this thread and am a bit confused...is a sulfa allergy (to a med) the same as a sulfite allergy? Should we be removing certain things from her diet? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

they are not related. i am allergic to sulfa, and sensitive to sulphites, but they do not go hand in hand. there are a few websites on it, you could google, i'm in a bit of a rush, but wanted to add that.

One of my son's is allergic to sulpha-based antibiotics, but he is fine with sulfites. Many years ago I did question a doctor and he said they are two completely different things.
