Living with a handicap

From six to twelve months are necessary to determine the physical aftermath of the disease and thus a potential handicap.

Meningitis are insidious diseases. Purpura symptom does not always appear. But when it appears, time is precious because the consequences may be serious.

The disease can lead to a handicap. The aftermath of the disease may be headaches, difficulties to hear correctly, a loss of vitality, a lack of stamina. The person is much more weak  and may become epileptic.

Purpura leaves marks  such as third-degree burns or necrosis. If the disease is detected or treated too late, amputation is necessary. Coma is also among the consequences of the disease.
