Thanks for posting your query.
Persistent headache which is not getting controlled with over the counter analgesics can be due to-
Vascular headache
Eye problems
Cold and cough
High blood pressure
Gastric problems

He needs a detailed examination by a physician to decide the probable cause of headache and investigations as per need. The treatment will then depend on the cause.
In mean time, please do following which should help,
