Q.

toddler with headache

My son is 3 and half. Very healthy. Tonsils out, no other problems. Since Saturday he has been complaining about headaches. Took him to Emergencies and doctor could not find anything wrong. Last night again headache and fever, but woke up this morning and he is fine. Dont know what else to do. Dont want to give him Myprodol syrup everytime he complains about a headache. Any advice please!! Can it be the heat?

Paediatrician

I am never happy to hear about a 3 year old complaining so clearly about headaches. There are many causes of headaches at this age. Some causes are mild and some very serious. I strongly suggest that you take yor son to see a paediatrician.
