In brief: R/o hemarthrosis

On a well known hemophiliac any abnormal joint may have blood ( hemarthrosis) in it so the treatment is to replace the coagulation factor that is deficient (viii or ix or a substitute for this ( the hematologist should be asked).
If there is no suspicion for blood then antiinflamatories that has no similar effect to Aspirin ( Acetaminophen c/s Codeine )or topical medications ( capsaicin) are safe.

In brief: Asp/replacement

The damage to the joint is from the blood breakdown process using all the oxygen and neutriants and the articular cartilage starves abd dies.
Replacement of you clotting factor and washing out the joint or even just aspiration after clotting times r ok. Be followed closely and keep up on you clotting factor replacements.
