    Question Why cant you give a child aspirin?

    I know you cant give a child aspirin but have never been told why. What would happen if a child was given aspirin?

    Because there's a chance it could lead to Rye's Syndrome, it is rare though.
    Read about it here.

    Cat is right. Rhyes syndrome is rare but very dangerous....you are way better off sticking with ibuprofen or tylenol.
