Fever is the body's reaction to fight germs. Fever is often caused by viral, bacterial, fungal or other parasitic infections. Fever is a condition that is actually good and is protective for the body, because when the fever is the immune system is in the process of getting rid of germs in the body.
High fever (more or equal to 39 ° C) in children older than 6 months and less than 6 years is at risk of causing febrile seizures. Febrile seizures are generally a normal and harmless condition if it lasts less than 10 minutes, the child is conscious or crying after the seizure and no neurological disorders are found after the seizure.
Related to your question, it is important to distinguish whether conditions such as shock or shock to children when fever is a condition of febrile seizures or are not included in the category of febrile seizures. Often children who have a high fever will feel uncomfortable and trigger the emergence of uncoordinated movements such as shock. There is also a condition called hypnic jerk or short seizures / myoclonus. Hypnic jerk is included in normal seizures, lasts briefly and often appears during sleep. This condition will cause overall muscle tension, giving rise to images such as jerks.
You do not need to worry, if your child has a high fever more than 39 ° C, give a fever-lowering drug so that the child feels comfortable. When children feel comfortable and can rest, then the possibility of conditions such as shock / surprise will decrease. Give a compress of warm water if necessary and multiply the provision of fluids that can help reduce high body temperature. Also provide comfortable clothes, not too thick, give a thin blanket if necessary.
If the complaint does not improve within 3 days, you should immediately check with the nearest doctor for further evaluation and administration of appropriate treatment.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
