Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX

Fever and head ache has many causes:

1- any viral fever

This is most likely.

2- sinusitis

She should have some cold symptoms for this!
Either preceding headache or associated with headache.

3. Rarely meningitis or encephalitis ( these are remote possibilities)

All the best

God bless
Dr Uma
