Brief Answer:
No need to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM,

Your headache is highly unlikely related to eaten Soframycin cream.

Also,there is nothing to be worried about it since it will not cause any problem.So there is need of any testing for it.

You can take over the counter pain killer (like paracetamol or ibuprofen) whichever suits you from the relief of headache and drink plenty of water.

Otherwise nothing to worry.
