Customer Question

my ten year old daughter has had the last couple of days very bad head aches in the afternoon, eyes hurting (particularly the right eye) and has developed a few spots on her forehead.

Hi--can you tell me more about the spots? Any fever or stiff neck or any other symptoms?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no stiffness, no temperature. spots are small and slightly pink and grouped on forehead above nose area roughly and One what appears to be mosquito bites on each of her legs about six inches above ankle.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
OK Tallulah. While I can't be certain about this I think she has a fairly severe sinus infection without perhaps the nasal discharge or fever. As for the spots, those could be from this being a streptococcal infection. My concern would be that left untreated this could result in rheumatic fever and possible rheumatic heart valve disease so I strongly suggest you have a doctor see her and give her antibiotics if he thinks those are warranted.
