Meningitis symptoms

Here’s how to help someone with meningitis.

1. The person may have flu-like symptoms, a headache and a high temperature. The person may also complain of a stiff neck and be sensitive to light. At a later stage a rash may form (that does not disappear when a glass is pressed against it).
2. Call emergency services when you observe these symptoms.
3. Give constant reassurance until help arrives.
