Q:
What’s to know about meningitis rash on children?

A:
In fact, rash is one of the last symptoms of meningitis. You should take your kid to the doctor once you find some early signs rather than wait until your child has a rash.

Other things you need to know is that the rash looks like small bruises. They are purple or red spots on the skin. You can use a glass to see how serious the rash is. Press the glass against your child’s skin. If the rash fails to fade, it means the condition is severe. You need to take your child to hospital immediately.
