Dear XXXXXXX thanks for posting query.

Headache is the commonest reason for which patients visit doctors worldwide.
In your case there are many of possibilities

1.low grade fever,or fever like.(as you are having tiredness also)
2.Some physical or mental stress(which is common every where)
3.Fatigue due to over work,less sleep etc.
4.Common cold,sinus problem(you said you had some skin allergy recently)

But with still with either of this there is no reason to worry.Take more of fluids,light diet,avoid cold drinks,take more of hot one.Take proper rest.In between use of computer every hour or two take a break of couple of minutes during which close your eyes and relax.

As far as medicines are concerned you can take simple pain,fever medicines which suits you.Take it as and when required and with the other measures advised above I think you should be fine in a day.

Even when you have associated cold or like, you can take plain steam inhalation or with inhalation medicines available easily,if you are comfortable taking it.

Persistence of headache beyond couple of days or increase in intensity calls for doctors examination,then please go for one.

Other wise I think you should be fine .Still if you have some queries left with you please let me know and write to me.

Dear XXXXXXX good to see you back.
This is pretty common in viral.Please take more of liquids and continue taking light diet,your symptoms are suggestive of fever.Continue taking fever tablets at the interval of 8 hours.

Do not skip meals,take proper rest.Continue this for 2 days and if not improved then you may need to see your doctor.But in most the cases this not required.You can have more of fruits,salads like tings which will be light on stomach and make you feel good.

Take care and you will be fine.
