The pain of a migraine headache can leave some people unable to function.

Now, there's a new patch that could soon be a routine treatment.

Patients put it on their foreheads for eight hours.

Research shows that within two hours, two out of every three patients felt relief from the pain.

The patch contains a medicine that numbs the nerves of the forehead, which helps cure the migraine.

Doctors claim the patch has no side effects, although it is still being tested.
