I have had a headache for 3 days. I am worried because 3 days

Resolved Question:

I have had a headache for 3 days. I am worried because 3 days before the headache started I tried to force an underground pimple to pop on my lower right cheek. I am worried I pushed bacteria into my face and that it has caused a cavernous sinus thrombosis -- I saw that as a possibility on the Internet. I'm scared
