Headaches Accompanied By Pain In Both Ears?
Hello, I want to ask. Lately, it has been almost a week that my right-sided head hurts starting from the aching right ear, until now both of them are hurting so it feels annoying. And indeed I have a temperature / cold allergy especially now that it’s the rainy season. Is it dangerous or just an ordinary headache? And do you need special treatment from a doctor? Are these symptoms that I have sinus? Because I have a cold almost every day, it’s not the flu, rather, my nose produces a lot of saliva. Please answer thanks
