Nursing point for headaches

  • Children often get anxious their head hurts, so please try to calm them down gently.
  • If your child has a fever, avoid heavy clothing and make sure to keep hydrated.
  • If there is vomiting, rehydration is also important. However, do not force your child to drink.
  • If there is a convulsion, loosen the clothes and turn your child’s face sideways so that vomiting does not lead to choking.
  • Go visit the hospital and do not give your child headache medication.

At your visit, let your doctor know

  • Since when did your child’s head start hurting?
  • Has your child ever been diagnosed with allergic rhinitis or empyema?
