Fever-Related Seizures

Fever-related seizures are full-body convulsions that occur due to fever in a young child. They usually affect children between the ages of 6 months to 6 years, and they are most common in toddlers between the ages of 12 to 18 months.

Fever-related seizures, while very scary, usually do not harm the child. They usually stop on their own within a couple of minutes.
