If your child has a fit or a convulsion, they may suddenly become rigid, with staring eyes. Sometimes their eyes will roll and their limbs will twitch and jerk. Or they may suddenly go floppy. The following suggestions will help you deal with the fit:
Although fits may look alarming, they’re common in children under the age of three. Although there are other reasons why children have a fit, a high temperature is the most common trigger. Therefore, ensure to keep your child’s fever down by offering paracetamol.
Fever fits, also known as febrile convulsions, become increasingly less common after the age of three and are almost unknown after the age of five. Febrile convulsions aren’t usually connected with epilepsy. Read more about febrile convulsions.
