My child took Aspirin...

My daughter who is 8 told her dad she had a headache yesterday when she came home from school. He had her take two of my low dose baby aspirin. He did not know that children are not supposed to take them. I tried to research and it seems like it's only a problem if they have the flu or chicken pox. I was exposed to the flu a few days ago and of course, have been around my daughter.

Should I be concerned? Is there something I can do to prevent Reye's? How likely is it to happen?

Thanks for you help.
