Morning … I want to ask you about the end “this is my daughter 8 months out of the hospital with high fever 38-40’c. Allowed my child to be allowed to anticipate what it is like there is a second seizure that paracetamol is effective what’s up ?rims
Did your child have a seizure during a fever? When you were told at the hospital what was the cause of the fever? What medicines are given to take home? Fever causes a lot, one of the most frequent causes of fever is due to infection. When in the hospital, the doctor will conduct an examination to ascertain the cause of the fever whether due to infection or not and also ascertain the cause of the infection in order to provide more appropriate treatment.
When fever, sometimes children experience seizures. If there is a febrile seizure, it would be better if the parents bring their children to the nearest doctor or emergency room so that observations can be made on the child's condition. The doctor will conduct an examination to ascertain whether due to febrile seizures or seizures associated with causes other than fever. The doctor will also provide seizure treatment in accordance with the child's condition at that time. If a seizure appears, the doctor will give a seizure cut drug. To reduce fever, doctors can provide fever-lowering, for example paracetamol.
Your actions to bring the child to the hospital are very appropriate. Is it really still fever now? If the child still has a fever, you can give paracetamol according to the doctor's recommendations. It's also a good idea to check your child's temperature regularly during a fever. Give the child enough fluids, if still ASI, multiply breastfeeding. Warm compresses on the armpits and adjust the room temperature to make it more comfortable. When the fever is better for children to be given comfortable clothes, don't give a jacket or thick blanket to the child during a fever.
It is expected that if the fever goes down, the risk of febrile seizures will also go down. If at home the fever does not go down for more than 3 days, or if the seizures appear again, you should take your child for control to the pediatrician so that further treatment can be given.
Hope it helps you,
