How high is her fever?

How has she been feeling otherwise?

Why do you think she might have meningitis?

Thanks,

Schuyler

I have not taken it exactly - earlier when she would take neurophen it dropped but this afternoon head and neck were v v hot. Her hands and feet being cold is what made me think of meningitis. Today she has been totally blocked up with snot and Pusey eyes . Earlier in the day asking to sort of play , picking up toys, went for a little walk. This afternoon clingy

I just read on various websites that cold feet and hands with a temperature is a sign of meningitis - is that it the case?
Health Professional: A. Schuyler, NP, Nurse Practitioner replied 2 years ago

No, that isn't usually the case. In children between 1 and 3 years old, you should call her pediatrician when shehas a fever of 102.2°F (39°C) or higher to see of he or she wants to see your daughter. If she is otherwise eating and drinking, playing, she is probably fine.

I would urge you to actually take her temperature using a thermometer. Mild fever is the body's way of fighting off an infection. Often the extremities will sweat, making them feel cold and clammy to touch.

Symptoms of meningitis include high fever (above 39-40 degrees) that seems to come out of nowhere, stiff neck, terrible headache (sometimes with nausea and vomiting), sensitivity to light, lack of appetitie or thirst, difficult waking up.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Best regards,

Schuyler

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
