    2. Sulfonamide Allergy does not cross react with sulfur, sulfate, Sulfites
  3. Preparations: Sulfonylarylamines (Sulfa agents)
    1. General
      1. Typical sulfa-allergens, with greatest cross-reactivity to other sulfa agents

  4. Preparations: Non-Sulfonylarylamines
    1. General

    1. General
      1. Differ significantly from Sulfonylarylamines (despite both having Sulfonamide group)
      2. However, do not use non-Sulfonylarylamines if history of Anaphylaxis or Erythema Multiforme Major to sulfa agents
