Any help for possible sulfite allergy?

Hi,

Based on symptoms I think I may have an allergy to sulfites but can't find anyone who will test for it or offer any advice outside of "avoid foods & drinks containing sulfites" which is not easy. Has anyone been tested for this allergy or found any useful advice?

Sick & dizzy.

Hello,

I also have an allergy to sulfites. Found out by eating two pepperoncini (pickled green peppers) which I have eaten all my life. Suddenly I couldn't breath. You need to get an epi pen from your doctor. Sulfites are ubiquititous, very hard to avoid. Get the epi pen, get several actually, and read the instructions ahead of time. Educate your friends and relatives.
