Thank you for posting your query.
Your child's symptoms are suggestive of febrile seizures
, wherein a child between the ages of six months to six years, can get seizures associated with high fever
. This is not epilepsy
, as these children do not get seizures after the age of six. Also, the treatment consists of immediate lowering of temperature and there is no need to start any anti-epileptic drugs.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
