No you should be fine. If I have a batch that the sulfur seems to hang around longer than expected...it's probably unorthodox...but I give the carboy a rouse every day to allow the CO2 to bubble up and release the sulfur through the airlock.

As I mentioned, it's probably the wrong method, but it works for me. I don't worry much about oxidation since theres no oxygen in the carboy and can't get in with the airlock in place.

You might want to try degassing with a wine whip or something similar. I've heard that helps get rid of sulfur smells.

A whip might introduce oxygen, so you would probably need to also use sulfites to prevent oxidation.
