Hi, I recently had a suspicious mole removed from my back, located right under my bra strap. The day of the removal, I was asked by 2 different nurses and the Dr(dermatologist) if I was allergic to anything and I told them I was allergic to sulfur. The removal went fine and a couple of stitches were used. I was given a bacitracin/zinc/polymycin/sulfate ointment to put on the spot with a simple band aid over it and to change it twice a day. The 2nd nite, I woke up with severe itching in the area and checked the tube of ointment and sure enough discovered it said "sulfate" on it. I'm assuming that means it contains, sulfur, right? After spending a miserable nite, after my husband woke in the morning, I had him scrub the area good with soap & water and just applied vaseline. It feels somewhat better but bothers me still. I called the dermatologists' office and told them my concern and the nurse told me twice, "don't worry, you're not going to die"! I am a diabetic & don't heal well, and my husband after looking at the site this morn. said it looks a little red and "bubbly" around its" edges. Do you think I'm getting an infection? I hesitatie to call the same Drs. office again and get a "flip" answer. Would like to know what you think. Thanks! Charlene
