Seek Emergency Treatment
If your child has a high fever and it has led to a febrile seizure that is not stopping or is reoccurring, seek emergency treatment. If the child has only suffered from the one seizure, and it is apparent it is because of a high fever due to an illness, you can probably wait a short while to see the child’s primary doctor to get a check up on their condition. However, as a parent, if your child suffers from a febrile seizure, whether it is the first one you have ever seen or not, you are probably going to rush to the emergency room. Many individuals have never heard of this kind of seizure and do not understand they are generally benign. So, it is beyond frightening to see your child having a seizure, not knowing why, and not really knowing what to do. However, if the seizure goes away and comes back again, the child should definitely receive emergency care. If ever in doubt, having a medical professional evaluate your child is never a bad thing.
