Hi welcome to the health care magic

Fever, vomiting and stiff neck is sign of meningitis

For its further work up kerning sign is useful

In meningitis chin of face usually not touch to chest easily that is sign of neck stiffness

For vomiting domperidone tablet given

To prevent secondary bacterial infection antibiotic course needed

Hydration has to be maintained..

If needed CSF examination done to confirm type of meningitis and to choose medication

Take care
