In brief: Probably not

Sunflower allergy like other food allergies is due to an immune reaction against the protein in the ingested food.
Highly refined oils should not contain the protein and should be safe. If you are very allergic or if the oil is pressed by a boutique where it might not be completely free of protein, it would be better to avoid.
