Tricky: cannot say in your particular case, but generally, use of the hands at or above shoulder height can cause neck spasm that can cause headache (int he back of the head). tension typically gives headache around or just above the eyes, as can eye strain if one were looking into the mirror to do something on the face (makes one's eyes cross thinking about it). ...Read more

Stay calm !!: Popping a pimple does not lead to death if the pimple was related to a skin problem such as acne. Most likely, the pimple and your headache are not related. If you are concerned, you should see a doctor regarding your headache if it is unusual or not responsive to OTC Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin assuming you have not allergies to these medications. ...Read more

Hello, I have had a large pimple on my forehead and I popped it today. I am having a mild headache now. Should I be worried and see a doc?

Hello, I have had a large pimple on my forehead and I popped it today. I am having a mild headache now. Should I be worried and see a doc?

Maybe. Maybe not.: A typical pimple on a forehead does not cause a headache, unless a person is really, really unlucky and the pimple somehow spread its bacteria deep into the forehead or head... which almost never happens. Most likely, the headache has nothing to do with the one pimple. If a headache is persistent or worrisome, a patient should get checked by her primary care doctor. ...Read more

Bad headaches for over two weeks with bad pimpleson forehead. Never suffered with pimples in youth. ?

Need exam: The headaches could be migraines. You didn't say if you have that as a history. Sounds as if they're not well controlled. As far as the pimples are concerned...I assume you're referring to acne? A simple cleansing protocol for the skin may work but if this is highly unusual for you then, an exam by dermatology is in order. Likewise, for the headaches if necessary see headache specialist. ...Read more

I have hurt my nose in past

Who nose?YouNeedADoc: This sounds like something that will need to be examined in-person. Frequent nosebleeds, lesions in the nose and a history of prior trauma that may have altered the anatomy (depends on the type of injury and how it healed, of course). The "weak and dizzy" part may or may not be related to all that but definitely adds more evidence that you need an in-person exam. Don't let the nose get too dry. ...Read more

My illness started with a bad headache and a sore throat. After two days of taking Advil, my headache went away but my sore throat stayed and red, pimple-like bumps were forming all over my hands, feet, and face. Is there a way to cure this?

My illness started with a bad headache and a sore throat. After two days of taking Advil, my headache went away but my sore throat stayed and red, pimple-like bumps were forming all over my hands, feet, and face. Is there a way to cure this?

Doctor can check: A sore throat can be evaluated by a primary care doctor to see what the cause might be. Sometimes it is a strep throat bacterial infection (antibiotics would be needed to treat strep). Other possibilities include viral infections such as Hand-Foot-Mouth disease or Mononucleosis (mono), a tonsillar abcess, throat ulcers, etc... The doctor has to look at the throat and rash to figure things out. ...Read more

I have a sore throat with what look like white pimples on my tonsils. I have a low grade fever and pressure in my heads and a headache and dizziness.

Tonsils: White spots on the tonsils could represent exudate from an acute infection or may represent tonsilloliths, aka "tonsil stones". Tonsils stones may cause throat pain and bad breath. The latter is treated with gargles and mouth rinse. See your doctor for evaluation if you are not feeling better in 5-7 days. ...Read more
