Fever Seizure In A 2 Year Old Child?
Morning doctor, the child used to have seizures at the age of 2 years with a short duration, then vomited and then after a few months later had seizures because of fever. And td at dawn (age 4th) because of fever seizures again, after a long time no seizures. Will my child be okay? And this includes ordinary or complex seizures? Remembering this is the third seizure. Currently my son is still in the hospital for observation, it’s just that the doctor in charge doesn’t explain / doesn’t communicate much. Please yes, thank you .. 🙂
Hello Mother Hanaza! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Febrile seizures are those that occur in infants or children who have a fever. Fever seizures generally occur in children aged 6 months to 5 years. Seizures may be scary to parents, but febrile seizures are usually harmless. However, the doctor will perform a complete examination to determine if the seizure is caused only by fever or if there is another cause. If all test results are negative and the child does not have seizures again within 24 hours, the child may be discharged. 24 hours, or there is a nervous breakdown before or after the seizure. The seizures that your child experiences may still include normal febrile seizures. The two previous seizures did not make the current seizure a complex febrile seizure. The story from the mother alone is not sufficient to determine whether the febrile seizure being experienced included a febrile seizure or a complex febrile seizure.
If the doctor who treats your child does not explain the condition of your child, you can ask the doctor again. The doctor who examines your child directly understands your child's condition better. The doctor will perform various tests to determine whether your child has a more serious problem or not. The doctor will provide treatment according to the conditions of your child. If your child has the usual febrile seizures, you should be more careful when your child has a fever. The doctor will usually give seizure medication to be inserted into your child's rectum if your child has seizures at home. Immediately take your child to the nearest hospital emergency room if he has a seizure. Do not put anything in the mouth of the child who is having seizures. Do not hold the body when you have a seizure, just make sure the environment is safe and there are no dangerous objects around the patient. Pay attention to the form of seizures in children. Record the time and duration of the seizure. Watch what the child does after the seizure, whether the child can respond when summoned. The seizures should no longer occur after the child is 5 years old. If your child has seizures after 5 years of age or has seizures without a fever, you might consider taking him to a subspecialty pediatrician.
That's my explanation. I hope this helps.
