How is cluster headache treated? What can we do at home to comfort child afterwards?

The treatment is generally directed to prevention of the headaches for which calcium channel blockers are probably most often used. Also used are anti-epileptic meds, tricyclic antidepressants and sometimes even steroids.Get to a peds neurologist for more help.
