Headache: Since there are many causes of headache one can't give you a blanket answer. See your doctor to determine the cause and the treatment.

Many options.: Headaches can be caused by many different causes - eye strain, dehydration, neck tension, or be migraine-type. If you get a mild headache only occasionally, i suggest trying to drink a glass or two of water, take some tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen, get off the screen if you have been keyboarding or texting, and ask a friend to massage your neck and shoulders for a few minutes. If it persists, see the doc.
