No nasal polyps, no asthma, but 3 or 4 hives after nsaids. Also some tiny hives with no nsaids at times. I want to take aspirin anyway. Safe enough?
Which NSAID?: Hives from NSAID is considered to be an allergic reaction specific to that nsaid. Although once suspected to worsen hives from any cause, this is no longer true.

Can nasal polyps or deviated septum cause asthma. No aspirin allergy and no family history of asthma but do have asthmatic symptoms
Ibuprofen, aspirin now cause mild hives. Tylenol (acetaminophen) doesn't help me. It's only hives, can I still take it? Is it even a "true" allergy? I have no asthma

I've read that nsaid allergy is specific to that one nsaid, but i get hives after both aspirin and motrin. Why? Can i really not take either one?
3 allergists told me there was no way to test for an aspirin/nsaid allergy. I am desperate to know for sure if i'm allergic. Is there really no test?
