Children’s Eyes Flicker And Lips Move?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Blinking child's eyes and moving lips can be a normal condition, it can also. Often, the child's eyes will flicker when looking at glare, including light from television. Children's lips can also move when he tries to imitate what he watches on television.
Even so, these two conditions can also indicate an illness. One disease that can cause clinical symptoms like this is epilepsy. Epilepsy occurs when there is a disruption in electrical activity in the brain, causing abnormalities in movement, behavior, sensation, or even disturbance of consciousness. Often, epilepsy will be characterized by seizures. However, these seizures can vary in shape. One of them is the absence seizure, where the patient will show strange behavior, such as fixating on an object, blinking eyes, lips like chewing, and so on (as your child experiences). This epilepsy is often not known clearly the originator. However, some cases of epilepsy can be related to genetic influences, head injuries, brain tumors, strokes, infections, prenatal injuries, or certain developmental disorders.
To distinguish whether your child's condition is reasonable or not, you need to see it directly to your doctor or neurologist. If the doctor suspects an abnormality, he can also direct your child to undergo additional examinations, for example, a brain record (EEG), blood tests, CT scan, MRI, PET scan, and so on. This examination is also useful in getting rid of other possible causes, such as electrolyte balance disorders, psychological disorders, metabolic disorders, and so on.
At this time, you should not worry too much. Observe what are the things that often trigger complaints. Next, try to avoid your child from these triggers. Avoid your child from playing or doing activities alone without adult supervision. Limit your child's screen time, including by not letting him watch television too much. Thus, the potential for dangerous events can be prevented.
