To start off with him, here are the main causes headaches at the front of the head:
If you have any kind of sinus problem, it almost always causes a headache, be it within minutes or a few hours later. If you have a cold or some other kind of congestion problem, the best thing to do is to take a decongestant as well as a cough suppressant in order to get over the cold as quickly as possible. If you have allergies that are causing your sinus problem, try and avoid things that provoke your allergies.

You should drink at least eight glasses of water a day, and if you drink anything caffeine through the day, try drinking slowly more water to counteract the dehydration.
