Headaches in kids
Hi Doc, I have a 5 year old daughter and 2 weeks ago she had a tonsillitis(infected tonsils) and she also complained of a headache.The tonsils have since cleared up, but she still from time to time complains of a headache this is accompanied by a high temperature.I have taken her to the doc twice already due to these headaches. What could be the possible causes of this, I ' m beginning to get worried.

The most likely cause of your daughter's headaches with her symptoms is sinusitis. Please ask an ENT specialist to see her about this possible diagnosis.
