Are there any negative health effects associated with breathing in air surrounding sulphur hot springs?

I would be interested in what sort of gaseous compounds might be found in such air, which might likely have a negative health-wise impact.

  • Does the spring emit toxic hydrogen sulfide? It smells like rotten eggs and can overcome a person quickly. But not all springs emit it. Apr 13 '17 at 5:11
  • @MikeWaters Is a smell of sulphur due to the hot springs enough to deduce that hydrogen sulfide is being emitted? I am just asking about general sulphur hot springs though.
