posted in: Diseases | 0


Treatment. Cases of encephalitis due to certain viruses usually require intravenous antiviral treatments. Treatment for mild cases, which may be mistaken as the flu, mainly consists of:

  • Bed rest
  • Plenty of fluids
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs— such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen sodium (Aleve, others).
