Aspirin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). it works by inhibiting the production of pain-causing chemicals at the site of injury. It also reduces inflammation and high temperatures.
When the body experiences illness or injury it releases chemicals called prostaglandins which cause inflammation and pain. Paracetamol blocks the production of prostaglandins, which results in the body being less aware of pain or injury. Paracetamol also reduces fever by acting on the part of the brain that controls temperature.
