When the baby has a fever and convulsions, many parents will panic and fear that it will cause serious damage to the child’s brain. At this time, we should send the child to the hospital as soon as possible, and carry out physical cooling at the same time. Don’t take antipyretic drugs blindly. Generally speaking, infant diseases include infants from 6 months to 4 years old, especially infants prone to high fever. When the child’s body temperature rises sharply, the higher the body temperature, the easier it is to attack. In case of high-temperature convulsion, there will be symptoms such as loss of consciousness, upturned eyes, closed teeth, twitching limbs and so on.
Babies who often have colds and fever are most prone to high-temperature convulsions. Cramps mostly occur when the baby has high fever. For example, the temperature is 39 ℃ – 40 ℃, and the duration is relatively short, about 2-3 minutes, generally no more than 10 minutes. After the convulsion stopped, the child also woke up.
Many parents believe that high fever convulsions will burn the baby’s brain. In case of convulsions, they will panic. They forcibly pinch the baby’s people, Yongquan and other acupoints, often hurting the baby’s tender skin. In fact, the vast majority of high fever convulsions will not endanger the lives of children, nor will they hurt the brain, leaving sequelae. Parents need not be too flustered. But when convulsions occur, the baby is unconscious. At this time, if the vomit in the baby’s mouth is inhaled into the trachea, it will cause the risk of suffocation. Therefore, parents need to calmly and timely deal with the vomit in their children’s mouth.
