Welcome to HCM,
As there is history of febrile convulsion, do not take it lightly.
To know the cause of having fever is to be investigated.
Simply antipyeritic medicine is not enough.
Consult your pediatrician and get diagnosed and start the treatment as soon as possible.
Keep child well hydrated.
Ok and bye.
