The details of your adverse reaction to the NSAIDs will help an allergist understand your reaction and make recommendations on what medicines will be safe for you.

I take Celebrex with no problem. When I take Aleve, Advil, Motrin, I break out in hives. Aren't they all NSAIDS? Am I alergic?

Yes and no

Naproxen
Celebrex and Advil are different classes of NSAIDs so you could be allergic to one and not the other just like you could be allergic to penicillin but not to other antibiotics.

Dr. Sewa Legha answered:

If I have gotten hives from motrin, and to a much lesser degree aspirin, would I also definitely get them from something like aleve?

Not necessarily

Aleve
It is worth a trial of one dose of aleve. More than likely you would have no such reaction

I get hives from ibuprofen. does that mean every type of nsaid causes me hives, or is this a one-specific drug situation usually? would aleve be ok?

No

Hives
Aleve is not okay. They is a higher probability you are allergic to that med as well as it is the same basic compound as ibuprofen. You can try another NSAID but these are all prescription meds.

Dr. Ronald Krauser answered:

I've had a few small hives after taking ibuprofen and aspirin. can i try aleve/naproxen? never had swelling, breathing issues and don't have asthma.

No

Breathing
There is a cross-reactivity between ibuprofen , ASA and naproxen. If you get hives on one, the same will happen when trying the other meds. Rechallenging yourself with naproxen may cause you to have a far worse allergic reaction next time.

Dr. Kristi Woods answered:

What are good treatments for hives like allergic reaction?

Antihistamine

Allergies
An antihistamine such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl) can help with symptoms. Hives can come and go for several days. I usually recommend using a once daily antihistamine such as Claritin, Zyrtec, or Allegra, and using the Benadryl when the hives break through. I will sometimes add H2 blocker such as Zantac or Pepcid, which also act as antihistamines.

Hives around mouth is there some type of allergic reaction?

Sounds like

you have contact allergy to something you ate, or something else you placed around your mouth, such as cosmetics, toothpaste, mouthwash. If it persists for longer than one day, go see a doctor. If you have breathing problems along with it, right away to the doctor.
