Hello Tirami, Thank you for the question.


Seizures that occur in your sister may be a febrile seizure. Febrile seizures are a type of seizure that occurs when a person has a high fever. This condition generally occurs in children aged 6 months to 5 years. When experiencing a febrile seizure, the child's feet and hands will jerk, the eyes look up, and the child will lose consciousness. After the seizure stops, the child's awareness will return but the child will usually look tired or confused. Febrile seizures usually occur when a child has a fever due to an infection or after receiving immunizations. In addition to febrile seizures, seizure symptoms can also be caused by meningitis, encephalitis, hypoglycemia, severe dehydration, epilepsy, and others.


Please advise your parents to immediately bring your younger sibling to the nearest hospital if your younger sibling experiences:

seizure more than 15 minutes
seizures occur repeatedly within 24 hours
looks very sleepy after a seizure
stiff neck
throw up

For now, also encourage your parents to monitor your sister's body temperature regularly with a thermometer. Compress with plain water on your sister's forehead and armpits to help relieve fever. Your mother can give paracetamol immediately if your sister's body temperature reaches 38.5 degrees Celsius and above. If your sister has a seizure, put your sister in a safe place, do not try to stop the seizure and do not put anything in your sister's mouth. After the spasms stop, tilt your sister's body. Do not hesitate to consult a doctor immediately if symptoms appear above. The doctor will examine your sister before giving the right treatment.


Hopefully this information helps you.
