In brief: ASA Allergy

That is a difficult question to answer. Many people allergic to asa, especially asthma and respiratory or swelling symptoms are also allergic to most of the nsaids (advil, motrin, ibuprofen, naproxen).
It would be safest to meet with your allergist to discuss your past reactions and the safety of using. And to consider an oral challenge.

In brief: NO

Depending on your reaction to aspirin, if you develop hives, swelling, abdominal cramps with diarrhea and shortness of breath from Aspirin you should avoid all non steroidal antiinflammatory drugs, including advil (ibuprofen).
