A 2-year-old Child Has A Fever, Convulsions And Loss Of Memory Briefly After Falling On His Back?
Hello. My neighbor is 2 years old. He had fallen in a supine position, with a rather loud impact on the back of the head. Then at night he is hot + convulsing. Then after a few days he woke up like someone lost his memory. But only briefly, then immediately realized again. How is that? Is that a serious symptom? Then how is the treatment? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
There are several danger signs that must be considered after a head injury, including:
a decrease in consciousness even if it only occurs for a short time (immediately after a head injury or a few hours afterwards) memory disorders (amnesia) there is disorientation (for example, do not recognize the place, time, or person) there are severe headaches there are vomiting there are seizures there are symptoms- other neurological symptoms such as vision problems, speech disorders, balance disorders, motor disorders, etc. in children, there are large bumps on the head and changes in behavior after head injury If your neighbors are found in the symptoms above, then the child must be immediately taken to the hospital for further examination. The child must get a CT scan to make sure there is no fracture in the skull and there is no bleeding in the head. It is recommended that your neighbors take their children to the hospital as soon as possible.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
