Dr. Nguyen Thi Minh Duc – Head of the Department of Neurology, Tam Anh General Hospital, Ho Chi Minh City, said that most people with headaches use painkillers to quickly relieve them.

Doctor Minh Duc advises that people with headaches, especially headaches that last long and do not improve, should see a doctor and take medication as prescribed by the doctor.

Use essential oils

A simple way to relieve headaches is to use aromatherapy from essential oils such as lavender, licorice, lemongrass, etc. The gentle scent emanating from essential oils helps you relax and relieve pain.


You can try gentle acupressure on your head and entire face.


If you are not familiar with acupressure, you can try gently massaging your head and face with your hands.

Head massage helps relieve pain.

Apply heat

Hot water has the ability to help capillaries and small arteries dilate, providing more effective pain relief.

Apply cold compresses

In addition to hot compresses, patients can also apply cold compresses.

Eliminate pressure on the head

In some cases, headaches can be caused by pressure on the head area (too tight a ponytail or bun, wearing a tight and heavy helmet…).

Rest more

Insomnia, lack of sleep or poor sleep are common causes of headaches.

Stay in dark spaces

Light can stimulate headaches to become more severe and intense.

Go to a quiet place

Besides light, patients are also susceptible to noise or sounds that are too loud.

Drink a lot of water

Lack of water and dehydration can both lead to headaches.
