Occasional use of over-the-counter pain relievers such as Excedrine may also be appropriate, but remember to exercise caution when using medications containing aspirin for children under the age of 15 due to the risk of Reye's syndrome.

these could be migraine headaches for her

best for her to see a doctor and see if she may benefit from migraine headache medications.

excedrine has caffeine in it to help headaches.
