Contraindication

    In medicine, a contraindication is a condition or factor that serves as a reason to withhold a certain medical treatment. Some contraindications are absolute, meaning that there are no reasonable circumstances for undertaking a course of action. For example, children and teenagers with viral infections should not be given aspirin because of the risk of Reye’s syndrome, and a person with an anaphylactic food allergy should never eat the food to which they are allergic.
