I have a few more questions to ask, is that ok?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

How high is her fever?
Has seen ever had any medication allergies?
Does she have a headache?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
no allegies
mild headache
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
she has had shingles, a few years ago
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

the rash may be due to an allergic reaction to the medication rather than meningitis. In either case, I would recommend that she gets seen today for a medical evaluation and they can determine if further testing is needed.

Does that make sense?

Do i need to send her to ER at the hospital, so worried it might be mincoccyl
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

An ER would be appropriate. They can diagnose both an allergic reaction to the antibiotics and (less likely) meningitis.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
she has had the rash prior to receiving pinacilliam, she has never had any reactions to drugs
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

Does that answer your question?

Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

Even if she as never had a reaction before, she can still develop an allergy.
If she has strept throat, that can also cause a rash.
Fortunately, meningitis is rare, but the ER is capable of diagnosing that as well.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
not really but you do think going to the er at hospital is a safer way to handle this in case it is serious
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
they keep telling us how important it is to get this meningitis thing diagnosed early, so the hospital is the best option, dont you agree?
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

yes, the ER can quickly diagnose if her rash and symptoms are from the strept throat/tonsillitis, an allergic reaction or meningitis.

Fortunately, bacterial meningitis is rare and usually people are fairly sick when they have it.

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.
