Have read that hives are specific to one nsaid, but i had mild hives from both motrin and aspirin. Worse with motrin, barely with aspirin. Why both?

In brief: Right

In this case , you may be allergic to both.
Do you develop hives from aleve or mobic (meloxicam)? If you have hives from all nsaids, then it blows away the current thinking of NSAID hives is related to a specific nsaid. Medicine is always evolving and it is patients like you who can help us broaden our knowledge.
