Maybe he is a bit young for Nurofen, it states on the bottle not to give to babies under 12 mths unless consulted by a doctor. I think that could be because of the antihistamine (sorry can't spell it) it contains as it can have a sleep effect.
Also it says on the bottle that babies or children who suffer asthma should not have any reactions to Nurofen.
