Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query.

Headaches can be caused due to many reasons.

  1. Migraines are severe headaches on the side or front, often accompanied by nausea and vomiting.
  2. Tension headache on both sides feels like a band around the head.
  3. Cluster headache.
  4. Sinus headache with a blocked nose and facial or frontal pain.
  5. Depending on the cause headache, treatment is given.
  6. Usually, counter pain killer helps, such as Paracetamol and Ibuprofen.
  7. If it is a migraine, then the tablet Sumatriptan 50 mg can be taken once a day.
  8. Sinus headaches are relieved by decongestants and nasal sprays.
  9. Antibiotics are given if there is a bacterial infection. Avoid the triggers that cause headaches.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
