You don't say how old your daughter is. The symptoms of meningitis include fever, headache, dislike of bright light, nausea, vomiting, stiffness in the neck and in babies, a swollen fontanelle (soft spot at front of skull). There can also be the telltale rash once septicaemia sets in, which is usually reddish purple and doesn't fade when pressed under a glass.

Sunnyd is so right on.  How long has the child had a fever and did you do anything to reduce it?  Because a child's body is not fully matured, Diseases can spread much faster. I believe Medical Professionals warn against giving children with a fever asa as it deadly. Anytime a child has a fever that increases or lasts longer than a few hours need to  have a consult from a Medical expert.

The symptoms of Meningitis can vary from child to child depending of factors such as Age and health. In infants the symptom is usually only fever. I would recommend you to consult a doctor immediately as there is a possibility that your daughter has it.

I hope you are listening to these people, they are telling you the right thing here. Get the child to the doctor. I sure would. There's no reason to take such a chance that it might not be. Hope this helps, good luck.
