Aspirin relieve pain

Aspirin is used to relieve pain such as headache, toothache and period pain. It is also used to treat cold and 'flu-like' symptoms and reduce fever in adults (over 16 years of age). Aspirin may also be used to reduce inflammation in muscular aches and pains, but other anti-inflammatory medicines are often preferred

Aspirin works by reducing the production of chemicals called prostaglandins which cause pain

Aspirin is also used in lower doses to reduce the stickiness of platelets in the blood, which helps to prevent unwanted blood clots from forming within the body
