The Baby Has Had 2 Seizures In Less Than 24 Hours?
, I want to ask. My first child, who is only 6 months old, had two seizures in less than 24 hours on August 31, and her body temperature always fluctuates for more than a week and the peak is on August 31. I took my child to the hospital and had my child checked, and the results of my child’s blood lab tests were all normal except for high platelets and low electrolytes, the hospital doctor suggested that my child be taken to a hospital equipped with a Brain Recording Facility.
Seizures in children can be caused by various causes. Seizures in children should receive medical attention. From what you are experiencing, if your child has a seizure that is preceded by a fever it may be a febrile seizure.
Fever seizure is something that often happens. febrile seizures can occur in children aged 6 months to 5 years. if your child has had 2 seizures within 24 hours it is usually a complex febrile seizure. Complex febrile seizures have a tendency to recur. Complex febrile seizures usually require hospital admission for follow-up observation and examination. Seizures in children usually require additional examinations such as an electrical brain record (EEG) examination. Fever seizures are caused due to any infection that can cause fever, so usually if the child doesn't have a fever then the seizures don't occur.
But besides that, the condition that your child is experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
epilepsy electrolyte disorders certain brain tumors, therefore, it is recommended that you immediately consult your child to a pediatrician, so that the doctor can check the condition of your child directly and check further.
To prevent the reoccurrence of seizures, one of the efforts you can do is to give fever-reducing drugs according to the dose given by the doctor, you can give fever medicine every 4 hours. It is also important to have anticonvulsant medications available at home. If the child has a seizure, do not put anything in the mouth, especially hard objects. You can prop the child's mouth with a cloth in case of a spasm to avoid injuring the tongue.
