Bacterial meningitis needs immediate hospitalization. Early diagnosis and treatment will prevent brain damage and death. Bacterial meningitis is treated with intravenous antibiotics. No specific antibiotic for bacterial meningitis is prescribed. It depends on the bacteria involved.
Fungal meningitis is treated with antifungal agents.
Viral meningitis may be resolved on its own, but some causes of viral meningitis will be treated with intravenous antiviral medications.
Parasitic meningitis may be either involved in treating just the symptoms or attempting to treat the infection directly. This type may get better without antibiotic treatment depending on the cause. If it worsens, however, your doctor may try to treat the infection itself.
