Hello lidnur, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Headache, in the medical world can be divided into 2 types, namely primary headache (headaches whose causes are not very clear) and also secondary headaches (headaches that occur due to other diseases).
Primary headache itself can be caused by tension headache, migraine, or cluster headache. Whereas secondary headache can be caused by various diseases such as head injury / trauma, inflammation of the lining of the brain (meningitis), inflammation of the brain (encephalitis), sinusitis, and others.
Therefore, to find out exactly what causes the emergence of headache complaints in your child, you should check your child to the doctor for further evaluation of other complaints that are felt and also his current physical condition. The doctor may also ask your child to do some investigations such as head CT scans, x-rays of the neck, etc., depending on the doctor's judgment, to help determine the cause of the complaint. After that, then the doctor can determine what the diagnosis of your child's current condition, and also determine what therapy should be given. Whether the headache will continue or not, it will also be determined by your pediatrician after the cause is determined.
