Prevention Febrile Convulsions

Prevention

Most seizures cannot be prevented. There are some exceptions, but these are very difficult to control, such as head trauma and infections during pregnancy.

  • Children who are known to have febrile seizures should have their fevers well controlled when sick.
  • The biggest impact caretakers can have is to prevent further injury if a seizure does occur.
  • The child can participate in most activities just as other children do. Parents and other caretakers must be aware of added safety measures, such as having an adult around if the child is swimming or participating in any other activities that could result in harm if a seizure occurs.
  • One common area for added caution is in the bathroom. Showers are preferred because they reduce the risk of drowning more than baths.
