hi,
As your son has headache and perspiration ,he might have temperature may be viral or bacterial.Therefore you consult pediatrician and seek his advice.
Give plenty of liquid and give Tylenol for headache temporarily.
Ok and bye.

My 22 year old daughter bumped her head on a shelf at work three days ago and still complains her head hurts (headache). Should she be worried about a possible concussion? Is seeing a doctor necessary? No other symptoms - pupils dilate normally, no dizziness or nausea.

Sorry this may be a duplicate question. My 31 year old son has complained of headaches since November 2017. He went to several doctors (primary, ENT, ER) and was prescribed 5 different antibiotics (including Levoquin) along with steroids, nasal spray, ear drops. Diagnosed with sinusitis. He has had no relief at all. I finally took him to an ER in another city where he had a CT Scan - normal. Was given Fiorocet but has had no relief. He has also lost 14 pounds in 3 months without dieting. Any suggestions?
