I Agatha, I have an 8-month-old child, what I want to ask is that my child often experiences seizures, but when given milk or carried the child returns to normal, before I have asked the doctor at the clinic around he said I only stiffen my muscles, is it dangerous? Because this seizure / spasm occurs after my child is treated for heat and diarrhea around the age of 3 months, thanks in advance

1 Answer:

Hello Agatha, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.

Actually a little difficult to distinguish several types of seizures in you, especially babies. However, if as you said that the child returns to normal after being held or given milk it may not be a seizure. You do not describe the condition of your child (such as a stiff hand, a tense head, or eyes widened, etc.) so that I also have trouble guessing it is a seizure or not and which type.

But considering the age of your child is still under 5 years you should be aware of the presence of seizures, especially when the child has a fever or commonly referred to as a febrile seizure. Seizures can harm the baby's condition, because the nerves in the brain can be damaged and disturbed so it must be handled properly. My advice to you is, when a complaint that you feel is a seizure in your child appears immediately, quickly take your child to the doctor to judge whether it is a seizure or not. Because it will be very difficult to distinguish seizures based on just a description.

Right now what you can do is:

 Continue to evaluate your child's condition, especially his growth and development. If your child has a fever, immediately bring a doctor, to prevent fever is too high and can trigger a febrile seizure. Compress warm water on the armpits during a fever. That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
