A 27-year-old female asked:
Is a burning sensation in your head normal while having a cold?

Might be normal: I don't think that this is a sign of something terrible. Could be just simply related to the cold. Lots of fluids, Tylenol, (acetaminophen) rest and see how you feel over the next day or two.

Hard to say: May be due to various causes. It would be more helpful if you give more information: How long has it been present? Does it last all day? If not, how long each time. Where in the forehead: in the center vs on either side of forehead? Are there any other symptoms: fever, trouble with vision or any other symptoms? "Burning" type pain often signifies a problem with a local nerve to the involved area.
