Dear Pat
A stink bomb usually contains sulphur. Some people are sensitive for the sulphur gas - they would typically cough when drinking fruit juice preserved with sulphur dioxide. Except for irritation of the airways and symptoms of allergy, I don't think a stinkbomb contains enough sulphur to really cause permanent damage.
