About the rash
- A rash will not always appear with meningitis
- A rash is a sign of blood poisoning and it can be one of the last symptoms to be displayed
- If and when it does appear, it could be too late
- Meningitis and septicaemia can kill within hours
Knowing all the symptoms to look out for and acting quickly can save lives.
Our campaign urges people not to wait for a rash and instead highlights the other symptoms to look out for and empowers people to trust their instincts.
