Exam needed: A physician would have to inspect the skin lesion for diagnosis. Daily headaches, if dull,nonthrobbing, are often muscle contraction tension headaches. However your physician or a neurologist should evaluate you for proper diagnosis. Any appropriate tests would be ordered. Stress management therapy would be helpful in the treatment of tension headaches.
