Causes And Ways To Overcome Febrile Seizures In Children?
…. I know from Medan, this is my neighbor’s case, and I am very sad to see this child in very poor condition, this child is agile and healthy when playing, but at night his body temperature will change and it can be 2 nights in step conditions, eyes spinning and stiffening still, like fainting, alternating balek and whether this is a hereditary factor, because the mother has a history like that, the first child is also like that, please enlighten her, because finally the mother said her child must be treated by the village, or treated by the village, which seeds must be turned off, I don’t understand what kind of seeds, but I feel devastated because I once brought this child in a seizure condition to the clinic, I ran away, his mother could no longer afford it at that time
Hello Ruth, thank you for asking.
A seizure is a condition in which a person loses consciousness due to the work of the central nervous system in the brain that is impaired. Seizures can occur in the whole body or parts of the body. Seizures can be caused by various conditions, for example:
High fever (called febrile seizures).
Tumor of the brain.
And various other reasons. If the child does not have a high fever and seizures occur repeatedly, chances are it is not a febrile seizure. The child must be taken to a neurologist to determine the type of seizure. The doctor will do an EEG to check the child's brain waves. In addition, doctors may need to do a CT scan or MRI to assess whether there are structural abnormalities in the brain. When the diagnosis is established, the doctor will provide appropriate therapy and action.
In the meantime, things that must be considered are when the child has a seizure, do not give any food drinks. Tilt the child to the left to avoid choking. Immediately take the child to the clinic or hospital. Supervise the child while playing because a seizure attack can occur at any time so that it may cause injury.
Hopefully this answer can help find a solution. Regards.
