Whenever i take tablets like novalgin, septran, crocin,etc, i develop a rash in my mouth,nose skin darkens, skin of the penis thickens and the penis also develops an itchy feeling with a certain amount of swelling.All this subsides once i discontinue the above drugs.I understand that i've lost immunity to certain drugs in which sulphur is present.I take homeopathic medicines these days for normal fever etc. However i would like to know as to what are the drugs i'm allergic to and what drugs suit me to avoid last moment panic in case of an emergency.

You seem to be developing either Erythema multiforme' or Fixed drug eruption to various drugs. It is not that you have 'LOST' immunity but the converse is true. Your immune system is 'OVER' reacting to the drug antigens.There is no safe drug - as individual reactions vary. You can get the safe list only by trial
