Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Greetings,Thank you for your question.I am Dr. Su S.I will try my best to help you.
How many times did it occur?
How is her general condition, consciousness, feeding?
Did it occur at the height of temperature?
Thank you for the input.I am very sorry for her symptoms.Her symptoms are not typical of febrile seizure.Usually generalized convulsion occur, though focal one may occur too.Febrile seizure have good prognosis.However, as it is a new symptom, I would advise to get her checked by doctor.You can use ibuprofen too to reduce fever.Ibuprofen can be repeated 3 -4 times, it can be given 6-8 hourly.Acetaminophen can be given 4-6 hourly but not to exceed 5 doses.You can also give lukewarm bath or sponging.Children often loose appetite in infection.Please give her plenty of fluid to keep good hydration.I hope this information will be helpful.If you have any query, please feel free to ask.If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating. Wish her healthy life.Regards.
