My head hurts for the last 3 hours and I have fever should I go to the doctor?

Some problems that can come to mind are flu, strep throat, viral illnesses or othe rmore severe illnesses.

Likely benign illnes: Most 24mo with fever & a rash will have one of many viral illnesses that occur at that age & most have many systems affected by the illness as it spreads through the system. Headache is common in febrile kids old enough to articulate the feeling. A normal CBC is good news & a good basic screen for bad germs. The process should improve gradually or seek a recheck if the kid seems to fade again. ...Read more

Headaches : Headaches "behind" the eyes would be compatible with a sinus infection, particularly associated with swollen glands in the neck. Not all sinus infections cause fever, sore throat, or runny nose. The vast majority of cases are caused by viral infection. It is always good to get a physical examination by a doctor to look for findings consistent with the presumptive diagnosis. Partial or compete resolution of symptoms within 7-10 days is typical of acute viral rhinosinusitis, a self-limited process for which treatment is supportive aimed at symptom relief. I hope this is helpful, and i hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
