With yiur history of recurrent stye, cold and skin infection it is important to assess your immune system and diseases affecting immune system. Hemoglobin, Complete blood count, differential count, complete metabolic panel importantly blood sugar and HbA1c levels, Immunoglobulin electrophoresis are recommended at this point.
The headache you are experiencing is likely due to vision changes recently. Please be advised to get vision testing done and assess the need for glasses.
