Meningitis warning to parents – know the signs and symptoms!

This is Kayleigh, one of my students who discussed today how her son nearly died of Meningitis.  She followed her instincts and got help even though he didn’t have a rash.

Kayleigh said ” Kodie had cold hands and feet and a high temperature – at no point did he have a rash.  I knew something wasn’t right so I rushed him straight to the hospital, where they did test and found out he had meningitis.  I didn’t think it would be that as there was no rash, which was all I knew about meningitis.  Parents need to be aware of all the signs as it can save lives”

Make sure you are aware of all the signs.  We run regular paediatric first aid courses which cover childhood illnesses and injuries.
