11-month-old baby with recurrent febrile convulsions should go to the doctor right away?
Hello doctor. My son is 11 months old, 1 month ago he had a febrile convulsion 1 time he was paralyzed when the caller was unresponsive for about 5 minutes, then he took off his hat and coat and took him to the hospital. When I went to the hospital, my baby was normal, my temperature was 37.5, after that, I sent him home to monitor, he had a fever again, I gave him a fever reducer, but about 6 hours later he was sleeping and he had a convulsion for about 5 minutes. The baby's temperature in the hospital was 38.8. The doctor asked me if my 11-month-old baby had recurrent febrile seizures, should I go to the doctor right away?

With the question: "Does an 11-month-old baby with recurrent febrile seizures need to go to the doctor right away?" The doctor's answer is as follows:
11-month-old baby that during a fever 1 month ago had 2 seizures / 1 day like that is a complex seizure, it is necessary to examine and evaluate to find the cause. Usually convulsions in this age group are often caused by high fever. The fact that children sleep or dream and startle is also caused by many other reasons: noise, poor sleep ... not necessarily because the baby had a seizure before, so going to a psychologist at the age of 11 months This is not necessary, you need to pay attention to use antipyretic early when your baby has a fever (Temperature >= 38 degrees to start using to reduce fever) if your baby still has seizures, you should take him to a medical facility. to investigate and find the cause. .
If you still have questions about your 11-month-old baby having recurrent febrile seizures, you can go to the hospital of Vinmec Health System for examination. Thank you for your interest and question to Vinmec.
