My kid had bacterial meningitis when he was 3 months old. He was treated and completely cured. Is there any chance of it re occuring? What are the small symptoms which I should worry upon and take him to a doctor? I have not visited a neurologist since then but going for pediatric visits frequently. Now he is 5.
