I would like to ask a few more questions:
If there is only a mild fever and cough, the headache is most likely due to a mild viral illness that should run its course and does not require treatment. However, if he develops a high fever (> 102 F) with increasing lethargy or worsening headache, I would recommend that you make an appointment for him to be seen by his regular doctor.
