In brief: Absolutely not

If you are allergic to one, it is almost certain you are allergic to both.

Unless you have what we call aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease with which most of the NSAID would trigger asthma often severe If your reactions are hives or swelling from just Advil, you may tolerate Aleve since such reactions appear to be a specific allergy to that drug Do check with your allergist to helo you sort this out before venturing further.
