How To Deal With Children Crying Like Seizures?
Hello… what is the cause of a child crying like a seizure, even though the child’s temperature is normal, his hands and feet are shaking like fear…. and how do you deal with it?rnThank you……
Thanks for the question on HealthReplies.com
Previously, it was necessary to make sure in advance whether it was true that the child had a seizure.
Seizures are conditions in which the muscles of the body contract uncontrollably. Some of the symptoms that can appear are:
Loss of consciousness Changes in eye movement Saliva or foam Repetitive and rhythmic movements of the arms or legs Usually this seizure accompanies a high fever whose temperature is above 38 degrees Celsius. But in epilepsy, the condition of fever does not have to arise. Because in epilepsy there is a decrease in the seizure threshold which causes children to have seizures at any time.
If this is the first time you have experienced this condition, then you should check your child's condition at the nearest pediatrician to better know the cause. Meanwhile, some suggestions that you can do are:
Lay down your child but don't hold your child too hard Put a soft pad on the patient's head and neck Avoid putting anything in his mouth Keep sharp objects from around the patient Accompany the patient until the seizures stop or medical personnel come That's the information we can convey. Hope it is useful
