Can ibuprofen and benadryl be given together?

My son has been sick the last few days and I have been giving him children's motrin for body aches and fever. He wound up having an outbreak to a food allergy earlier today, and our allergist told me to give him his dose of benadryl every four hours. Does anyone know if he can take them at the same time? Or a few hours apart? I looked on google and it said they are 2 diff. medicines(pain reliever and antihistamine) and no interactions, but wanted to make sure.

Yes. I've been told by my pediatrician to use them simultaneously with DS1 in the past.

Oh sure, that is what Advil PM is. Just make sure to give him children's doses.
