Bacteria can also directly invade the meninges aka the membrane of the brain and spinal cord Viral Viral Meningitis is not severe as bacterial meningitis and is able to clear up on its own. It is occurred by a group of viruses called enterovirus. This type of meningitis tend to happen during late summer early fall. It is basically a seasonal sickness. Chronic Chronic Meningitis occurs when small organism grow around the membrane and fluids of your brain. This type of meningitis is rare. Fungal Fungal Meningitis is uncommon but causes chronic meningitis . It can also mock bacterial meningitis and can be life threatening if not treated. This means that the immune system failed at sending white blood cells towards pathogens or failed at developing immunity causing the nerve system to respond incorrectly and receive the wrong message from blood. Due to the wrong message, it causes the brain to become damage. The immune system basically interfered with the nerve system by stopping it from controlling/regulating parts of the human body correctly. Viral Meningitis is known to be mild and would not necessarily need antibodies. Instead the doctor would recommend bed rest, plenty of fluids, and pain medication to help reduce fever and relive body aches. Fungal Meningitis is treated by:
Antifungal medicine: helps kill the fungus causing your infection.
Fever medicine: This medicine lowers your temperature. Common medicines used to lower temperature include acetaminophen and ibuprofen.
Steroids: This medicine may be given to decrease inflammation.
Antinausea medicine: This medicine may be given to calm your stomach and prevent vomiting.
