 Differentiating Sulfur Compounds: Sulfa Drugs, Glucosamine Sulfate, Sulfur, and Sulfiting Agents
Sulfa drugs are more appropriately labeled sulfonamides and are derivatives of para-amino benzoic acid.
The sulfa drugs are usually not allergenic by themselves, but when a sulfonamide molecule is metabolized in the body, it is capable of attaching to proteins, thus forming a larger molecule that could serve as an allergen.
A sulfite reaction is different from a sulfonamide allergy (a reaction to sulfa drugs) because sulfites and sulfonamides are entirely different chemicals and have unrelated mechanisms of reaction.
