Childhood Diseases

Hello Doc,
My 3 year old is complaining that her head is sore constantly.
We took her to the doctor monday, and ears, tonsisls are clear, but she was put on celestamine because when the dr asked her, she indicated that it is sore above the eyes, and under the eyes, put inside.
My husband has been really sick the last two weeks, he is on his third course of antibiotics, and he has a constant headache as well...
Thing is, she is going on as normal, playing, running around.....

Have given her Nurofen, Ponstan, Stopaine.... But according to her, it does not go away....

What can I give to her, or how can I be sure?

Thank you!

I am always concerned when a young child complains about headaches. Your daughter is too young to have any frontal sinuses yet so this is not a sinus headache. There are several possibly serious causes for headache at this age so your daughter must be seen by a paediatric neurologist or paediatrician as soon as possible.Also of concern is that she does not improve on very powerful pain medicines.
