Headaches in 6-year old

My son is 6, and has been complaining about headaches for the past 7 months. I took him to an ENT, who suggested we have his tonsils removed. We had that done last month, but now he' s already complaining again about headaches. He says it' s on his forehead. What could this be??

It is important to always take note when a child complains of headache. Sometimes a headache in children may be caused by serious conditions but mostly by mild illnesses. It is important to take your son to be seen by a paediatrican so that a proper diagnosis of his complaint can be made and that he can be correctly treated.
