    If the disease is proven to be only viral, then a lot of liquids and medicines to lower temperature (tylenol), if the baby is severely dehydrated then maybe fluids intravenously in the hospital. Children (or anyone else for that matter) should not get antidiarrheical medication. By the way meningitis doesn't present with diarrhea just headaches high fever and, depending on the bacteria, rash.
