ASPIRIN TEST

ASPIRIN TEST

Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid or ASA) and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) – e.g., ibuprofen, naproxen or Advil, etc. –are widely used by people of all ages to treat pain and fever.

An allergy or hypersensitivity to both ASA and NSAIDs may cause any of the following:

    • Hives
    • Itching
    • Swelling
    • Shortness of breath
    • Nasal congestion
    • Wheezing
    • Feeling faint or passing out
    • Severe reaction or anaphylaxis

Our allergy experts are skilled in clinically diagnosing via symptoms since there are no skin or blood tests that easily determines allergies. We sometimes recommend an oral challenge to better determine which ASA or NSAIDs are causing the problem. This improves the patient’s ability to avoid their allergens.
