A serious contagious illness
The glass test
My child is showing some of the signs of meningitis.
Have you tried the glass test?
Treat all cases of suspected meningitis as an emergency. If the spots do not fade under pressure call 999 or go to A&E.
If you are still worried, contact your GP out-of-hours service. If you cannot get help go straight away to the Accident and Emergency Department.
