Top of head very sore and red does not itch

a week ago my ears were muffeled and I could feel like there was an issue in my head like the pressure in my head was not right. my ears were trying to clear up when I would yawn but then go back to a low muffeled hearing. Right after my ears went back to normal hearing I got a sore spot on top of my head and it's red and bumppy in a longgated shape going towards my front of my head. About an inch long. stopping just before my forehead, Also my right eye is sore behind it. If I rub my right eye I can feel it's sore in the back of my right eye.

Hi,

Have you had bouts of sinus headaches before?

I suggest that you have yourself thoroughly assessed by an ENT specialist.A thorough eye examination will also be able to help.

Differentials for your case will be a sinus headache and a headache secondary to an eye problem. The congestion of nasal sinuses may present with a sensation of fullness within the head and the inflammation and swelling that come with  sinusitis may refer pain to other areas of the head.

Your physician will provide you with the right medications.Drink plenty of water and apply warm compress over the forehead to relieve the pain.Observe your symptoms once you have started treatment.

no sinus headaches, but issues with alergies yes. Would   sensation of fullness within the head and the inflammation and swelling that come with  sinusitis may refer pain to other areas of the head. As you stated cause that kind of sore-ness on top of the head? with a red spot sensitive to the touch? The swealing bump did go down, but its still red and sore.

thank-you,
