How can mollaret s meningitis, cough and fever be treated?

I have mallorets meningitis, I have struggled with it apparently since I was about 2-3 years old due to varicella and a bad blood infection. About a month ago I had symptoms of meningitis again... Went to ER and was admitted to hospital for a week and a half for antiviral therapy via IV... The day before I was discharged the doctor in charge of my care ordered a picc line to continue IV therapy at home... After 2 additional weeks of antiviral ivs.. Picc line was removed. This was a week and a half ago.. Two days ago I awoke in the middle of the night running a low grade fever and right shoulder and right side of neck was swollen, I developed a cough and now everytime I cough it feels like someone it sticking a hot poker in my right lung and right frontal aspect of my neck, is it possible I ve developed an infection internally?
