Meningitis is an extremely dangerous disease that causes inflammation in the layers of tissue between the brain and skull and along the spinal cord. Though relatively rare, the infection can be caused by numerous sources such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi. If someone in your Georgia home or business has become infected by meningitis, then you need to have your property thoroughly cleaned and decontaminated so no one else becomes infected. At Georgia Clean, we’re here to quickly and thoroughly clean the entire area so you and your loved ones are protected.
Two Main Types of Meningitis
Meningitis can have numerous causes – viral and bacterial being the two main ones. Though viral is less severe than bacterial, both are dangerous and need medical attention. The earlier the disease is caught and medicine can be given, the more likely the patient is to survive with little to no side effects.
- Viral – Most cases of viral meningitis are mild and clear on their own. This type is especially common in late summer and early fall.
- Bacteria – Bacterial meningitis occurs when bacteria enters the bloodstream and find its way to the brain or when bacteria finds its way directly into the layers between the brain and skull. This form of meningitis can be fatal and is particularly prevalent in people who live in close quarters with each other such as in college dormitories.
Most people are vaccinated against meningitis as a regular part of their medical care along with a booster at ages 16-18. In many places, the vaccine is required for students to enter certain grade levels at school. Even with vaccinations, meningitis is still out there and can pose a serious danger to anyone who contracts the disease, especially infants and the elderly whose immune systems aren’t as strong.
Symptoms of Meningitis
The main symptoms of meningitis include fever and a stiff neck. Even if your symptoms are minor and not severe, you still need to have the area thoroughly cleaned as someone else can then become infected. Though symptoms vary by age, they usually include:
- Headache and a staff neck
- Muscle pain
- Lack of appetite
- Skin rash
- Sensitivity to light
- Cold hands or feet
If you have any of these symptoms, it’s important to see a doctor right away. The effects of meningitis can be severe, even fatal, and the earlier it’s caught, the better the results can be.
The best way to prevent meningitis is to keep things clean and disinfected. To protect yourself and those you love, always thoroughly and regularly wash your hands with hot water and soap and disinfected all surfaces.
