Mild Headache Home Remedies

Treating a mild headache will usually involve over-the-counter pain medications. There are many different medications marketed for control of headache pain. The pharmaceutical companies spend millions of dollars each year to advertise their products. However, many "special" headache remedies are no better than simple acetaminophen (Tylenol and others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, Nuprin, and others), or aspirin. In addition, stress reduction and rest may be helpful.
