Hi Ravishangar, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
What other symptoms doe she have? Is she running high temperature along with seizures (Fits)? She has a Infection and Proper care has not been taken to control the body temperature. It is not as serious as it may look, but with Proper and vigorous treatment with antibiotics, anti pyretics and IV Fluids the symptoms will come down gradually. Do Tepid sponging to bring down the temperature, as many times as possible.
Good Luck.
