Febrile seizures (febrile convulsions)


Febrile seizures (febrile convulsions) are fits that can happen when a child has a fever. They most often happen between the ages of six months and three years.

It can be frightening and distressing to see your child having a seizure, particularly if it’s their first one.

However, the fits are usually harmless and almost all children make a complete recovery afterwards.

As a precaution, you may still need to take your child to the nearest hospital or dial 999 for an ambulance – see the section ‘What to do during a seizure’.
