My one year old son had a seizure and a high fever 104 and was admitted to the hospital for the past two nights. He seemed better so was released. Now his temp has been dropping to as low as 95 when he sleeps. We bundle him and it gets to around 97 after an hour or so but starts sweating badly. Are we doing the best thing for him? Is this ok? They ran urine blood tests white blood cells are good but one blood test came back with minor infection said it was viral. Just keep an eye on him. We just want what s best for him but are very concerned. PLease help.
First of all, some children suffer from a febrile seizure. they need to avoid infections as much as possible, besides taking paracetamol 125 once per day when he has infection and Diazepam 2 mg once per day when he has seizure only.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
