Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

I am sorry that no expert has yet responded, but it is likely there is no simple cure for many types of encephalitis.

Encephalitis is usually viral and the only viruses that cause encephalitis that can be directly treated are the herpes viruses that can be treated with acyclovir. Other viral encephalitis is not able to be treated with medicines that will afford a cure. In most cases, the treatment is supportive care and management of complications.

However, supportive care and management of complications can potentially include many different aspects of care, because the care would need to be adjusted according to how the encephalitis is affecting that patient. It would be difficult to provide that level of information over the internet because it would be difficult for you to communicate how the encephalitis is affecting the patient.

So, a treatment for a cure is only an option for herpetic encephalitis, and the treatment would be acyclovir. Otherwise, treatment is supportive care and management of complications, which can be many different treatments.

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.

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.
