Febrile seizures-A nightmare

MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
Febrile seizures-A nightmare
FACTS:
1.Most febrile seizures occur in the first few hours of a fever, during the initial rise in body temperature.It occurs usually in children in age groups 3mths -5-6yrs.
2.Most febrile seizures last only a few minutes and are accompanied by a fever above 101°F (38.3°C). Although they can be frightening for parents, brief febrile seizures (less than 15 minutes) do not cause any long-term health problems.
3.Having a febrile seizure does not mean a child has epilepsy.
4Children at highest risk for recurrence are those who have:

their first febrile seizure at a young age (younger than 18 months)
a family history of febrile seizures
a febrile seizure as the first sign of an illness
a relatively low temperature increases with their first febrile seizure

What should be done in case of febrile seizure:

>Note the start time of the seizure. If the seizure lasts longer than 5 minutes, call an ambulance.
> The child should be taken immediately to the nearest medical facility for diagnosis and treatment.
>Call an ambulance if the seizure is less than 5 minutes but the child does not seem to be recovering quickly.
>Gradually place the child on a protected surface such as the floor or ground to prevent accidental injury. Do not restrain or hold a child during a convulsion.
>Position the child on his or her side or stomach to prevent choking. When possible, gently remove any objects from the child’s mouth. Nothing should ever be placed in the child's mouth during a convulsion. These objects can obstruct the child's airway and make breathing difficult.
>Seek immediate medical attention if this is the child’s first febrile seizure and take the child to the doctor once the seizure has ended to check for the cause of the fever. This is especially urgent if the child shows sym.ptoms of stiff neck, extreme lethargy, or abundant vomiting, which may be signs of meningitis, an infection over the brain surface.

keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Allergy problem in rainy and winter season for our daughter .Now she is completed 9 years.

Allergy problem in rainy and winter season for our daughter .Now she is completed 9 years.
I assume its nasal allergy and not skin allergy. Start her with Chyawanprash daily 1 tsp twice followed by warm milk. Secondly, give her the following combination- 1 pinch haldi+1 pinch black pepper powder+ 1 pinch dalchini powder+ 1 tsp honey. Give this once a day. Try and make her do some deep breathing daily for 5-10 Min If allergic symptoms are more, give steam adding rock salt to water. Include lots of fresh veggies and fruits as week as dry fruits. Ask her to play and run. It increases lung capacity.

Weight gain is best parameter. If baby is on exclussive breast feed and passing urine 6 to 7 times in a day is also an indicator.

It is a form of birth trauma. Relax it won't cause any problem. It is due to blood collection in muscle. It will resolve on its own.

If money isn't the criteria you must go for all the vaccines. Pneumococcal vaccine will protect against invasive pneumococcal diseases like pneumonia, meningitis etc. After 6 months only 2doses are enough with a booster at 15 months.

Nothing should be given to the baby except breast feed. Other wise there will be the possibility of having infection and weight loss. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user nowadays we all have habit to google about the symptoms to know about the problem we are suffering from. But google is not a doctor or psychologist. There are standardized procedure for diagnosis. So relax and don't think too much by putting yourself into different categories. It's important for you to make a study plan or organiser. The plan should have breaks in between so that you won't get mentally tired. It's proven that studying for prolonged hours without taking break doesn't help in learning process. So make a study plan paste it near your study table. Set daily achievable goals for yourself. In the beginning may 2 goals per day. Motivate yourself to achieve those goals on time. Reward yourself for achieving those goals. Try these things. If you still face difficulty then take one on one counseling session. Remember that it will require time to change ones habit it won't be changed in one day or week. It's a process. Take care.

My son is frequently getting cold with age 4 years. Tired of using medicines. Any natural remedies to avoid cold. Ghee ,fruits even not suit for him.

General Physician,
Place eight to 10 drops of juniper essential oil in water in a 1-ounce nasal spray bottle. Use four to six times per day, shaking the mixture before each use. Hot drinks and honey. Any warming drink can help soothe a sore throat, suppress a cough, and calm the overall commotion of a cold or flu.
