And does my child have certain diseases after a febrile seizure? Thanks in advance
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Febrile seizures are seizures that occur in an increase in body temperature above 38 degrees celsius without any other underlying cause in children. Simple febrile seizures are classified as harmless and generally non-recurring, and complaints will disappear completely after the age of 5 years.
On the results of the attached blood test, which is classified as abnormal is the value of leukocytes that increase from normal, where the normal value is 5000-10000 u / l. An increase in leukocytes or leukocytosis illustrates that there is an infection due to invasion of germs in the body. One of the infections is also characterized by complaints of fever, which in this case triggers febrile seizures.
So the treatment in addition to administering anti-fever is to overcome the source of the infection by administering specific antibiotics. Provision of antibiotics should not be arbitrary because it is based on the source of infection and severity of symptoms. The doctor needs to confirm based on the symptoms complained of by the patient and physical examination to determine the source of the infection, it can come from the respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive, etc.
Therefore, do consultations again with the treating doctor to get adequate continued therapy.
That's all, hope you can help.
