Hello,

In my opinion, you should drink plenty of fluids orally, take proper rest and apply warm water pad on affected areas of the head.

Also, take a higher painkiller like acetaminophen and paracetamol combination. Don't worry, this pain will gradually subside in 1-2 weeks time.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
