EVERY ID IS A SULFA ALLERGY ALERT MEDICAL ID
Custom engraving means every ID works for you!
Choose the style you prefer, and we will engrave it with your sulfa drug allergy and other pertinent information.
Sulfa allergies are allergies to a family of drugs called sulfonamides. Some sulfonamides are antibiotics, while others are not. Interestingly, people who are allergic to antibiotic sulfonamides are not necessarily allergic to non-antibiotic sulfonamides. Sulfa antibiotics carry about a 3% risk of an adverse reaction, which is similar to the incidence rate of penicillin allergies. Also noteworthy is that some people are more likely to have sulfa allergies than others, including people with metabolic and immune disorders.
Sulfa drug allergies are dangerous because sulfonamides are such common medications and the reactions can be life threatening. In an accident or emergency situation, medical ID jewelry can inform EMTs and ER physicians of your allergy(ies), allowing them to avoid compounding an emergency situation with a potentially negative reaction and focus on treating the issue at hand.
A SULFA DRUG ALLERGY MEDICAL ID COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE
If you have a sulfa allergy, wearing medical ID jewelry is imperative. We recommend listing your name, diagnosis(es), any medications, all allergies, and emergency contact numbers. Although commonly misspelled as sulfer, sulfur, or sulpher, allergies to sulfonamides should be engraved as, “sulfa” allergies. Here are some examples of what to engrave on a sulfa allergy medical ID:
ALGYS: PCN, SULFA
IMPLANT: NO MRI
ASTHMA, GIVE INHALER
CELIAC NO GLUTEN
