Question

17 year old daughter

Gooday, my daughter has been suffering from a terrible headache since yesterday. Today she has developed a rash covering her whole body, small red spots and started vomiting a short while ago. She says the edges of her ears are itchy. She took Tramgesic Flashtabs by accident today (she uses them for menstrual pain) for her headache, not realising that they do not work for headaches so we are not sure if she is having a reaction to the tablets or if she has contracted one of the childhood diseases.

Your daughter should consult a doctor immediately to exclude meningitis. Some forms of meningitis presents with a skin rash, neck stiffness and a high fever.
