Could a fever cause a toddler to have a seizure?

What would cause this in a toddler.


Answer by  Cecilia (2828)

Yes, a fever, especially a high fever could cause a seizure. A seizure is a glitch in the electrical system in the brain. This would definitely be something to contact your health provider about soon. You might try to cool the child down but don't chill the child. In other words a lukewarm bath, not a cold bath or shower.

Extremely high fevers have been known to cause seizures in people of any age, but the risk is particularly high in young children. Some children are more prone to experiencing this than others, and if a child is especially likely to have seizures due to fever you need to be particularly aggressive in attempting to control their fevers.
