Meningitis - Know your symptoms

Your child might be 'feeling poorly' and not responding to you as usual

at first and wanting to sleep more than usual.

Does your child........

Feel hot. Have a temperature.

Have cold hands and feet.

Have a severe headache.

Throw up repeatedly.

Have stomach pain sometimes diarrhoea.

Seem confused, delirious.....'not like himself'.

Have difficulty walking or standing...pain in their joints.

Have a stiff neck.....When sitting down can they bend forwards to 'kiss their knee'.

Dislike looking at a bright light in the room or bright daylight.

Symptoms might appear in any order and may not include a rash at all.

Remember that 1 in 10 of us carry the bacteria in our noses and the back of our throats without usually causing any harm. It is passed on through close contact such as kissing.

In a few people the bacteria can get into the blood stream and cause meningitis and/or septicaemia.

We don't know who is at risk so know the could save a life. If you need further help and advice, contact the Meningitis Research Foundation helpline : 080 8800 3344 or visit

Have pale or mottled skin, a rash that does not fade when a clear drinking glass is pressed against it. On darker skin check paler areas on the body.
