Thank you for your question.
A viral infection will go away in two weeks' time at the most in the vast majority of cases.
Symptoms lasting for more than two weeks must be investigated to rule out other causes like a bacterial infection, sinusitis among other causes of headache.
I would strongly recommend that she be seen again and be investigated further to confirm the diagnosis and then be treated accordingly.
