Thank you for contacting Healthcare Magic.
The most likely cause for headache in your case is migraine. It is characterized by headaches lasting for four hours or longer. It is associated with nausea or vomiting. Headaches tend to get worse on exposure to bright light or noise.
In addition, you also have allergic rhinitis leading to cold and sneezing.
You need to start preventive medications (to prevent recurrence of headaches). Commonly used drugs include flunarizine and topiramate. You can consult a neurologist to get the prescription. After clinical examination, he may order for a brain scan, if necessary.
For pain relief, you could take DOLO (PARACETAMOL) 650 mg as and when necessary.
Please get back if you have any more queries.
Best wishes,
