Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The condition of recurring seizures like that of your child is known as epilepsy. Epilepsy can occur due to various causes, here are some of them:
Heredity Genetic abnormalities in children Trauma or head injury Injury to the brain at birth (e.g. baby doesn't breathe for long at birth) Certain infections during pregnancy Nutritional deficiencies during pregnancy Developmental disorders such as autism Falling from your child's motorbike at age 3 could be the cause epilepsy at this time. Recurrent seizures, especially if the seizures are prolonged, can be dangerous if left untreated. You should immediately take your child to the Pediatrician for further evaluation and treatment. In such cases, the doctor will usually order tests such as a CT scan or MRI, EEG (electroencephalogram), blood tests, etc., to find the cause of your child's epilepsy. Your child will also be given medicines to prevent recurrence of seizures. Medicines for epilepsy will be given for a very long time (can be years). However, these drugs are very important to prevent seizures from recurring in children. Therefore it is very important for you to make sure your child gets and takes the medicine regularly and does not drop out. When your child is already on medication, do not increase or decrease the dosage of your child's medication, let alone stop the medication without your child's doctor knowing. Control regularly to the pediatrician, because antiepileptic drugs should always be adjusted according to the child's weight.
