You need to use common sense. If the aspirin is causing an allergic reaction, you need to STOP the aspirin. Swelling and hives around the mouth is a dangerous response because if you keep exposing yourself to the allergen (in this case the aspirin) at some point your throat and airway could start to swell and this is a medical emergency! Stop taking the aspirin, especially if it is just being taken as a preventative measure. The risks outweigh the benefits in your case.
