Thanks for posting your query.
Pain in the temple region in children can be due to-
1. Ear infection.
2. Migraine headache.
3. Dental abscess.
4. Anaemia.
A direct physical examination is needed to detect the cause. You can consult an ENT specialist and a dentist to find out the cause. Infections may need early antibiotic treatment for symptomatic relief.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
