When a Child Has a Headache, Cool Gel ‘n Cap Can Help

When a Child Has a Headache, Cool Gel ‘n Cap Can Help

Cool Gel 'n Cap, a unique first aid cap for children developed in Western New York, can help relieve your child’s fear and discomfort from bumps and bruises, earaches, ear infections and headaches. In this article, we’ll explore the headache angle.

Parents often ask doctors, “Why do kids get headaches?” and “Should I be concerned if my child complains of one?” Kids’ headaches are actually quite common. Studies have shown that 40 percent of children have had a headache by age seven, and three out of four have had them by age 15. Of those, 4 percent are migraine sufferers.

Most headaches in children are only temporary inconveniences. But because they can sometimes indicate a more serious problem, a persistent headache should never be ignored.
