Feeling of headache when pressed on right eyebrow. What could this be?

I seem to have a tender pain feeling on my right eyebrow when I press on it. Sometimes, I get headaches that I mostly feel within this area and eventually it will spread, but most of the time it s within that area. Now, I don t have a headache but I have that feeling when I touch/press down on my eyebrow area. Not sure what this could be

Hi, welcome to our site. I am Dr Saumya Mittal, MD.

Read your query. That is a very significant question and i appreciate your problem. I will try my best to answer your query

It sounds a lot like sinusitis.

Sinuses are air spaces in the skull. These may get infected with prolonged colds and infections. The filled sinuses cause pain in the head- headache. The typical sinuses are in the headache, around the eyebrows, and the maxilla (around the nose).

The drainage of the sinuses will help. The sinuses, as soon as they are empty will relieve the skull and you can start feeling better.

I hope this helps you. Inform the reports mentioned above/if any other so I can be of help further.

I have given you the answer to the maximum considering the information provided. The results of the tests could further enhance my answer to you.

Please do understand that some details could be extracted from a detailed history and examination.

Please feel free to ask another query. I would be glad to help you. Looking forward to your return query with the details asked so that I can help you further.

Best of luck.
