Customer Question
My 10 yr old son...
My 10 yr old son has had headaches of varying severity for appx 1.5 weeks. He was diagnosed with strep 3 days ago and started on antibiotics. He continues to experience headaches (currently 8 out of 10 on pain scale). He is well hydrated. His pedi diesn't seem overly concerned, but I am questioning if the headaches are truly the result of strep. He has no other symptoms of the bacteria. Thank you.

No nausea.
Headache is behind eyes primarily and temples.
He is prone to headaches when dehydrated and overtired, and has experienced migraine like symptoms before.

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your son's problem.

Well, considering severity of pain, with headache this should not be left ignored and has to be checked by doctor.

Such severe headache are not common with strep infection.

This can be due to another cause like- Migraine.

A migraine is a very strong headache which may not go away easily. This can also be associated by some other symptoms like sensitivity to sound and light, nausea, blurry vision.

And, Most of the time, people with a migraine will want to sleep till the headache goes away.

There can be trigger factor for migraine like- lack of sleep, a poor diet, environment or stress, or infection.

He would need medications, for management of this issue.

Please take him to doctor and get it clinically evaluated.

Hope this helped
