Only 1 cup of coffee(creamer is ok)with 1-2 teaspoons of sugar(no more coffee bc it will make headache worse later),A tall glass of water and saltines.You're often queasy too,and you don’t want to eat much,but need to be sure you have enough sugar/electrolytes &you’re hydrated.Those are causes of headache too.Take the meds with food.They have many causes.If it’s chronic,go to PCP to start work up

Impossible to tell you with such little information or a visual. A pilonidal cyst comes to mind(benign sac since you were a fetus),lipoma,nevus, but it could be anything, a benign or a malignant lesion. Go to your PCP to show it .

Use a daily moisturizer with lactic acid or glycolic acid. In sun exposed areas, use a morning sunblock every day. Most importantly, you should see a PCP for a check up of general symptoms. Many serious internal conditions are associated to that kind of dry, darkish skin ( ichthyosis.)
