Headaches in a child, soreness in neck and nose, fever. Taken stopain, empaped suppositories. What could be causing these headaches?

My 5year old daughter has been complaining about headaches off and on over the past week. Then again complained that her head was sore just before she went to sleep. I gave her Stopain a few hours later she woke up screaming and with a fever of 38.5C I asked her what was wrong and she said her nose , haed and nek is sore. I immediately asked her if she can look down and everything seems fine. I have given her 250mg Empaped suppositories and her fever is down now but I am very concerned about the headaches she has been complaining about. What could this be?

Pediatrician 's  Response
Dear madam/sir,
I am really concerned that your child is suffering from head ache.
Head aches with fever in children are often due to non serious conditions like cold, sinusitis, ear infections and not due serious conditions like brain tumors as many parents consider. Probably your child is also suffering from infections like sinusitis, cold. Get an evaluation done by a physician.
Progressive head aches, early morning head aches associated with vomiting, head aches with seizures are the ones that are considered serious.
Don't worry, she will be alright. Just show her to a pediatrician. Take care.
