Thanks for writing to health care magic.

From the description provided by you I think you baby had febrile seizures. These type of seizures occur in the age group of 6 months to 5 years.
once we ruled out meningitis in such children we need not really worry about febrile seizures. We prescribe intermittent prophylaxis for febrile seizures. The medicines are initiated once fever starts to prevent seizure recurrence.
Is your baby active, playful and alert now?

You may contact me with further details on the following URL...........

In such scenario the questions are directly forwarded to me .............. and I can answer your queries regarding your kid online regularly.

Hope this helps.
Take care
