Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Sometimes headaches that occur in children cause concern for parents because they are thought to be related to problems with the brain.
However, headaches can actually be caused by a variety of conditions. Can come from structures in the head, it can also be from structures outside the head. Can be caused by medical conditions, or psychological. The intensity also varies, from mild headaches to those that feel very heavy.
Some medical conditions that can cause headaches in children are:
Infectious diseases, such as respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal infections, lining of the brain, etc. In conditions of infection, generally a person's body will experience symptoms in the form of headache, fever, weakness, pain in muscles, and pain in joints. Effects of stress, for example because children have problems at school Lack of fluids (dehydration) or lack of food intake (hypoglycemia) Inflammation of the middle ear Inflammation of the eyes (optic neuritis) Tooth and mouth problems, such as cavities, inflammation of the teeth / gums Inflammation of the sinuses (sinusitis) Collision in the head Rupture of blood vessels in the head Brain tumor To determine the cause of the child's condition, it is better to consult further with a general practitioner first to be examined directly. The doctor will explore further the course of the child's disease and will perform a nerve examination and if necessary an ENT examination to determine the exact condition of the child's headache. The doctor may also perform related investigations to determine the cause of the child's headache, for example a head photo, complete blood count, and so on. If necessary, the child will be referred to a neurologist or pediatrician for further tracking or CT-scan or MRI examination. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your child according to the underlying condition.
Here are suggestions that can be done at home to reduce headaches in children:
Limit the child's physical activity, don't let him have too much activity. Get enough rest, get enough sleep with the ideal time 7-8 hours a day. Eat enough and balanced nutrition, and regularly. Avoid consuming too much salt, and flavorings containing monosodium glutamate (micin). Recognize stress in children by frequently asking questions about their daily lives and problems they face, as much as possible parents also play a role in giving advice and motivating children as they go through the ages heavy ones. Also often take the child for refreshing, for example by vacationing with the family. To reduce headaches, children can be given painkillers marked in green (commercially available) such as paracetamol according to the exact dose listed on the package (but it would be better to consult first see the doctor before using the drug) If there is an emergency in the condition of the child's headache (alarm symptoms / red flag), namely decreased consciousness, very severe headache, vomiting, weakness in limbs, pelo talk, fever, seizures, immediately consult the child to the nearest emergency room to get immediate treatment
That is the explanation from me. Hope it helps and useful :)
