Most common cause of pain in this location is either migraine or frontal sinusitis. If the headaches appears typically after an XXXXXXX stress or any trigger factor then it's likely to be a migraine kind of headache.

If there are symptoms of common cold, nasal congestion or nasal blockage then this can be frontal sinusitis. A xray can help to determine this.

Mean while you can try oral painkillers for this.If symptoms fail to resolve then she would need evaluation.

For migraine treatment suggested are sumatriptan and ergot compounds etc.For sinusitis course of antibiotics is needed.

Avoid triggers like deprivation of sleep, smoking , alcohol ,bright light , inhalation of strong chemicals etc.

Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.
