Sounds like a reasonable hypothesis to me. Discuss with your Dr who knows allergies where you live.

Allergic reactions could trigger headaches, but unlikely to be the root cause. Allergies are very often associated with migraine. Your headaches could be due to tension cephalgia, jaw, sinus, neck, dental, and even inflammatory causes. Your doctor should be able to sort all of these out.
