Hi -

I'd echo Vee's suggestion that you ask a pharmacist if Sulfate and Sulfa are equal to one another. I seem to remember they are actually very different. I do know that Sulfonamide = Sulfa and I, too, became suddenly allergic to Sulfa. Before I knew that, a doctor I saw before I was dxed with lupus put me on Celebrex and I had a huge allergic reaction with swelling joints, a non-itchy rash (red ovals, raised edges) from my elbows to fingertips, and I felt awful. Once I was off the Celebrex, all of that went away.

I can take both Plaquenil and hydroxychloroquine without that or any kind of reaction.

Hope you find out what's up with your rash.

Wishing you well! Barbara
