The Cause Of Children Aged 2 Months Has Had Seizures 2 Times A Day?
Hello doc, I want to ask why my child has had seizures 2 times a day, and before I had 3 times but on the other hand … my son was only 2 months 15 days old without a fever … and had already been treated 1 week drumh sick a week then due to high leukocytes and low red blood cells .. now I am wondering what is the correct step for my child .. ??
Hello, good afternoon Dindha.
The most common cause of seizures in infants is febrile seizures (often referred to as "steps" by the community), and it is a common condition (if it occurs in babies over 6 months to 3 years of age). However, if a seizure occurs without a fever, especially if it occurs in babies under 6 months of age (as you have), then it is necessary to think about other, more serious possible causes, including:
brain tissue infection (encephalitis) infection of the lining of the brain (meningitis) lack of blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) epilepsy head injury etc.
We suggest that you immediately consult your child with a pediatrician to get further treatment, given that the seizures your child is experiencing have happened repeatedly. The doctor will perform a physical examination and perform supporting examinations if needed, such as blood lab tests, spinal fluid lab tests, x-rays, CT-scans, brain records, etc.
If after reading this answer your child has a seizure again, during the seizure lay the baby on his lap with his face down to prevent the baby from choking, loosen your child's clothes, and do not put anything in the baby's mouth. If the seizures don't stop after 5 minutes, immediately take your child to the nearest Emergency Unit, ma'am ..
I hope this helps.
Greetings, dr. Denisa
