Headache in children
It is common and rarely causes serious medical problems. Children, like adults, can develop a variety of headaches, including migraines and tension headache.

Headaches in children can be caused by an infection, excessive stress or anxiety, or a minor head injury. It is critical to monitor your child's headache symptoms and see a doctor if they worsen or occur frequently.

Children's headaches can typically be treated with over-the-counter pain relievers and healthy habits such as regular sleep and eating schedules.
A child's headache can occur for several reasons:
  • Illness and infections. Colds, flu, ear, and sinus infections are some of the most common causes of headaches in children. Meningitis and encephalitis are less common causes of headaches.
  • Head injury. Head injuries can result in headaches for some time afterward. Although most head injuries are minor, if your child falls or receives a hard blow to the head, seek medical attention right away. Consult a doctor if your child's headache persists following a head injury.
  • Emotional factors. Stress and anxiety, which may be caused by problems with peers, teachers, or parents, can contribute to children's headaches. Children with depression may experience headaches, especially if they struggle to recognize feelings of sadness and loneliness.
  • Genetic predisposition. Headaches, particularly migraines, are often inherited.
  • Certain foods and beverages. Nitrates, a food preservative found in smoked meats like bacon, sausage, and hot dogs, as well as the food additive MSG, can both cause headaches. Furthermore, excessive caffeine consumption in soda, chocolate, and sports drinks can result in headaches.
  • Cognitive issues. A brain tumor, abscess, or bleeding in the brain can occasionally put pressure on specific areas of the brain, resulting in chronic, worsening headaches. Other symptoms, such as vision problems, dizziness, and poor coordination, are common in these cases.
