Aspirin & NSAIDs Allergies

*picture is taken from HERE
NSAIDs stand for Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs. They are usually used for pain, inflammation, heart diseases and even fever.
Even though NSAIDs provide relief for many people, there are people who are allergic to them. Some people have hives (urticaria), swelling (angioedema), a sudden severe asthma attack and anaphylaxis.
Apparently many cold, sinus and allergy medication contain NSAIDS!
There are many types of NSAIDs which are sold. The four main NSAIDs are aspirin (Bayer, Bufferin, Ecotrin), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), naproxen (Aleve, Anaprox DS, Naprosyn) and celecoxib (Celebrex).
There are so many variations of NSAIDs sold today. *And drug manufacturers combine NSAIDs with other medications such as narcotic pain medications, muscle relaxers, anti-histamine and decongestants, caffeine headache medications and anti-acid medications.
