How To Manage Repeated Headaches In Children

Types Of Headaches

Like adults, children may suffer from several different types of headaches. A migraine is characterized by throbbing pain that becomes worse with physical activity. It may be accompanied by sensitivity to light and vomiting. A tension headache feels like a tight band squeezing the head. A cluster headache lasts less than three hours and is characterized by a stabbing pain behind the eyes. A chronic daily headache occurs when a child experiences a headache for at least fifteen days in one month.
