hi! looks like your child had a febrile seizure. it is a problem in a few children between 6 months to 5 years age in which they develop a fit in case there is a high grade fever. it usually gets better as the child grows older. all you need to be careful about is to avoid having very high temp. give him paracetamol and do sponging as soon as the child gets fever.
