cold wet sensation across one side of head

What can cause a cold wet sensation that starts at mid-forehead and travels along the side to the back of head on one side only followed by migraine-type headaches?

Sounds like the prodromal symptoms of a vascular headache (migraines are a type of vascular headache).

If you continue to have the headaches frequently, you may need to see a neurologist.

Good luck.
