In brief: Not Necessarily

You could have had a contact dermatitis from the salicylic acid and still be able to take aspirin.
You may need to have an aspirin challenge under the supervision of a physician to see if you react or not. You might also want to have a patch test that includes salicylic acid to verify for sure if that caused the reactions.
