What to Do When Your Child Has an Infantile Seizure

The do’s and don’ts when faced with an infantile seizure. Infantile seizures are more common than you think. Last week my little one suffered a series of seizures, due to a high temperature. A temperature is anything over 37.5C when taking a child’s temperature, orally. In the majority of cases, these are nothing to worry about. They stop when the child turns 5 years old. They are also often only triggered by high temperatures. On rare occasions, they may be a sign of something underlying. It is always wise to seek medical attention on the first occasion.
