In brief: NSAID Allergy

Even though there are several classes of nsaids, the fact that you have already had a similar severe reaction with two of the classes (ibuprofen & aspirin), it would be dangerous to try other nsaids.
It is also likely that subsequent reactions could be worse than what you previously experienced.
