The medication would not have been prescribed if he/she did not think it would be of benefit to you.

From your description, it sounds like a tension headache; however, further description is required. Use HealthTap Prime if a neurologist isn't availablle nearby.

I noticed a small bump behind my left ear 3 weeks ago. Since I have another on crown of head and forehead. Should I be concerned? What are they?

I noticed a small bump behind my left ear 3 weeks ago. Since I have another on crown of head and forehead. Should I be concerned? What are they?

Possible concern: The lump behind the ear is probably a lymph node which drains inflammation from the ear and scalp above it. So it's possible the things on scalp and forehead are foci of infection/ inflammation draining to the ear. Worst case is that the scalp is a skin cancer draining to the ear. Good idea to see dermatologist if these lumps aren't gone in 2-3 weeks. ...Read more

Alopecia vs fungus: Child probably is developing alopecia. It would be important also to rule out a fungal infection of the scalp. Best would be to see a dermatologist who can do a Woods light examination and a KOH prep and tell you the diagnosis and treatment right away. If it is Alopecia he will also be able to guide you properly and reassure you. If required further work up can also be initiated. ...Read more
