Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In infants aged 7 months, one of the most common causes of seizures is febrile seizures. This condition occurs when a baby experiences seizures when his body temperature rises. It is unclear the exact cause of this. However, infants and children aged 6 months to 6 years, especially those who have a history of offspring with seizures, have a higher risk of developing febrile seizures. Although at first glance it looks very alarming, in fact, in most cases, febrile seizures are not dangerous and do not also leave serious complications.
In addition to febrile seizures, seizures can also occur in infants due to other factors, for example epilepsy, head injuries, viral or bacterial infections, metabolic disorders, poisoning, and so on.
Anti-seizure medication can not be done carelessly without a prescription and direct supervision by a doctor, because it has the potential to cause dangerous side effects if not consumed properly. You should check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that you are given the right treatment, right?
In the meantime, you can try the following steps first:
Stay calm, no need to panic or worry too much
When a baby has a seizure, log his clothes, move him to a safe and comfortable place, not too soft and not too hard, tilt his body to prevent aspiration (choking of foreign substances other than air to the lungs), prevent the tongue from falling back, and avoid being bitten
Do not put anything in the baby's mouth
Give your baby breast milk according to their needs, accompanied by a healthy and nutritious MPASI
Do not carelessly give medicines to babies, without a prescription directly from the doctor
To reduce a child's fever, compress his neck and armpits with warm water, or take paracetamol 3 times daily after meals
Hope this helps ...
