Thanks for writing to health care magic.

I think from what ever you mentioned your baby is having infection what is called meningitis.

This could be because of various bacteria, viruses or tuberculosis.

This could be associated with complications but we should not loose hope and should hope for the best.

If such cases get immediate medical attention it can be treated better

Hope this helps
take care
