FEVER-FEBRILE CONVULSIONS

Title:   Fever – febrile convulsions
Publisher:   Better Health Channel
Description:   A febrile convulsion is a fit or seizure that occurs in children when they have a high fever or high temperature. A febrile convulsion is not epilepsy and does not cause brain damage, but can be frightening for a parent or caregiver. Lie the child on their side during a fit and make sure they do not breathe in vomit. Call an ambulance if the fit lasts for longer than five minutes. Take the child to a doctor after the fit is finished.
