Thanks for posting your query.
The pain and tenderness in the eyebrow area can be due to-
1. Frontal sinusitis- You may need antibiotics, anti allergics, decongestants and regular steam inhalation. You can get the necessary medicines prescribed from your ENT specialist after examination.
2. Eye strain- mostly associated with vision disorders.
3. Migraine headache- Avoiding triggers of pain will be helpful.
4. Anxiety and stress.
You need to consult your physician for a detailed examination and investigations to detect the cause so that specific treatment can be started.
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.
