In your article about low salicylate diet what intrigued me was the issue regarding ibuprofen. Looking back I would suggest that ibuprofen was the first thing which caused problems for me. In my case it is nosebleeds. Any foods with heavy salicylates would trigger nose bleeds. It is almost instantaneous. Spinach for me is the worst but as time has gone on I have found tomatoes, blueberries, avocados etc. will also cause  them. I did not make the connection with my asthma either until reading the article on your website. It also started around the same time that I had the reaction to ibuprofen. Very strange indeed. Thanks for this information - Sue L
