If the fits are occuring when she has fever, then it is a common problem and shall resolved by 5 years of age. If it is otherwise then it is a neurological problem which can have a longer course.

Welcome to HCM,
You are advised to see a good Doctor. Many Ayurvedic Medicines are good which works very well & even takes care of Irritating behaviour in children. These are all due to side effects of drugs, for which one cant help.

I will try my best to answer your query.

First of all you consult child specialist for the causes of epilepsy. Seizures in children have many causes. Common causes of childhood seizures or epilepsy include fever, genetic causes, head injury, infections of the brain and its coverings, lack of oxygen to the brain, disorders of brain development etc. Most seizures in childhood are not associated with a definite cause.

i advice you to see doctor and find out the cause responsible for it.

Hope my answer will be helpful for you.

Take care.
