In brief: Other medication

People who are truly allergic to Aspirin can undergo a procedure called Aspirin desensitization to allow for Aspirin consumption.
If you're interested, you should discuss this procedure with an experienced allergist. Otherwise, there are few options to choose from. While tylenol (acetaminophen) is often safe for folks with Aspirin allergy, it doesn't share the benefit of Aspirin or other nsaids.
