Brain fever is deadly disease, needs immediate hospital admission and treatment. please get a CT scan done soon. i think they will give penicillin injection. not to delay hurry up. kids are more sensitive to brain fever. they need antibiotics immediately.

brain fever means it is japenese encephalitis which is very dangerous and in your case it is a complication of seasonal flu which is meningitis. brain fever encephalitis and fever reaching brain is meningitis, both are not same
