  • sudden change in temperature;

  • very strong tremors;

  • Keep as calm as possible, do not shake, shaking you lose concentration, you do not do what is necessary for your child who is shaken further, you may be wrong;

  • to ensure that the child does not swallow his tongue. The muscles of the mouth of the child, are certainly tense and tend to keep it closed. Try to open it very gently and delicately, maybe massage, take your tongue in position, this immediately call your pediatrician and take him to the emergency room immediately.

The first project will be done to your child, will be based in trying to calm your child’s seizures.

This often is obtained by putting rectally through a small cannula, a strong dose of valerian. The effect is immediate.

Will then be made of intensified checks to ensure that the seizures are not only due to fever (this may be a manifestation of epilepsy, for example).

Without any controls, found that there are other problems, you can safely return home.

WHAT IF IT HAPPENS AGAIN?

Do not be alarmed.
