Dear Bidyut, Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

You havenot clearly mentioned your 'problem' with sulphur. What I infer is that you are allergic to "SULPHA" group of antibiotics (ie. sulphonamides); this will not be related to sulphur. IInd, zinc sulphate in Cap. Zevit contains sulphur in oxidized form ie. sulphate so it will not harm you. You can take Cap. Zevit without problem. It's one of common & good multivitamin preparation.
Wishing you best of health!

Hi, I am suffering from cold and from past two months, I have problem on breathing and I ignored as I thought its due to cold.. I just met a doctor yesterday for this problem and they suggest me for a x-ray scan. I did it and doctor found that my heart is a lil bit enlarged. he told to me that no problem just take this medicines (ZEVIt and cefolac-200) for 5days and meet him again. Having problem in breathing... but cant says its due to heart or cold.. :( I searched on internet and found that heart enlarged is not normal thing. I do workout and from past 15 days I m doing some heart pushed exercises for my chest at home. I also read that in body building, heart enlargement is normal. What should I do? Should I take this serious or not ?
