Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Do not panic.
A febrile seizure, also known as a fever fit or febrile convulsion, is a convulsion associated with a significant rise in body temperature. They most commonly occur in children between the ages of 6 months to 6 years.
Start paracetamol every 4hrs, give him tab frisium to prevent convulsions.
These medications should continue till the child is afebrile.Consult your doctor to investigate the fever.
These are generally viral in nature and has nothing to do with the child'd immunity.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
