Hello Diva, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Frequent spitting is not a normal thing to happen to children even though it is not a dangerous / life threatening thing. This habit can be a symptom of some disorders such as inflammation of the salivary glands, stones in the salivary ducts, gastric acid disease (GERD) or the presence of behavioral problems in children so it is advisable to consult a doctor to determine what causes it and what therapy or medical procedures recommended for treatment.
As for the problem of long-standing fever accompanied by seizures, it is certainly not normal and allows for a disturbance in your sister's brain function such as epilepsy or impaired body temperature regulation function, so it should be examined further by a neurologist. Your sister may be advised to undergo several examinations to make sure the cause of the complaint arises, and after determining the cause, then you can also determine what treatment should be given.
For other problems, which is often playing with gadgets for a long time, based on research, light / radiation on the gadget screen does not cause direct interference, but can cause eye fatigue and even cause behavioral disorders in children. Therefore, it is recommended that the use of gadgets, both in children and adolescents, be limited every day.
For now, there are a number of things you can try to do with your younger sibling such as:
Make sure your sister eats regularly and is not late
Prevent your sister from consuming foods or drinks that are acidic, spicy, contain caffeine, contain alcohol or fizzy
Keep your sister from smoking
Make sure your little sister gets enough nutrition every day
Make sure your sister does not lie down immediately after eating, and give a minimum of 4 hours between meals and lying down
Limit time spent using gadgets
Make sure your sister gets enough rest every day which is around 6-8 hours per day
Immediately give heat relievers when you feel your brother's body temperature has a fever and if seizures, immediately take your sister to the hospital emergency room to get further treatment
I hope this helps.
