Hi Hania, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Febrile seizures are seizures that occur at an increase in temperature above 38 degrees Celsius or more caused by processes outside the brain. Most febrile seizures occur in children aged 6 months to 5 years. The hallmark of a febrile seizure is that the fever precedes the seizure, at the time of the seizure the child is still feverish, after the seizure the child immediately regains consciousness. seizures will stop before 5 minutes and will not recur in more than 24 hours. The causes of febrile seizures are:
Genetics Viral or bacterial infections Immunizations If your child has a febrile seizure you don't need to panic, after the seizures stop take your child to the doctor or emergency room for immediate treatment. febrile seizures, the doctor will only treat the seizures and lower the body temperature, and treat the infection if it is the cause of the infection, and the doctor will not carry out supporting examinations such as head CT scan or EEG.
