Is SULFA of any characteristics surrounded by a Polymyxin B SULFATE and Trimethoprim Opthamlmic Solution?

Daughter treated for Conjunctivitis came down with a horrible drug reaction impulsive all over face and eyes. Dr states Suftate and Sufa are "different chains of molecules" and she has a NEW drug allergy and eye drops have no Sulfa in them. Is this so?
Answers:    Your doctor is correct. A sulfate is a "salt" not a sulfa drug. Sulfacetamide is the only eye drop that contains a sulfa antibiotic. Sulfacetamide can be combined with Trimethoprim, but it would be timetabled on your prescription if it contained it. Sounds like something else in the drops irritated her face and eyes.
