 Integrative Medicine: Meningitis 

Belladonna 30x or 9c is helpful for a child who has a fever, with dilated pupils and perhaps delirious behavior.

Bryonia 30x or 9c is good for a child who experiences eye pain and constipation. This child will complain that his entire body is in great pain.

General Recommendations
During the acute phase of meningitis, a quiet, dimly lit room will help ease the headache pain. Stories, a soothing massage, and holding will help reassure your child and ease his discomfort.

If your child contracts bacterial meningitis, be aware of the possibility of a subtle injury to the brain. Don't hesitate to talk to your doctor if you are worried about persistent hearing loss, problems with balance or coordination, difficulties with schoolwork, or similar difficulties.

Most medical doctors now recommend that children be routinely given the Hib vaccine, which offers immunity against Hemophilus influenzae bacteria (the most common cause of bacterial meningitis), starting when they are two months of age. This can be given either by itself or in combination with the DPT vaccine.
