There are many people who confuse Sulfur with Sulfa. There is a class of antibiotics with sulfa- for the beginning of their name, like sulfamethazine and sulfabendazole (sulpha was the older spelling). Sulfur is a natural atom like oxygen or water, some sulfur compounds smell stinky including farts. Whether or not sulfur is toxic depends on what compound the atom occurs in. All body tissues contain some sulfur compounds. Learn all you can about any allergies you have. Hope this helps!

Be careful with hand sanitizers. I think I could have used it too much. My co2 was too high.
