It is difficult to say what is the exact cause of Seizures or Convulsions in children. In most children aged between one and three years, convulsions are often linked to the development of a high fever. The child's nervous system is immature and often cannot handle a high temperature the same way that an adult does. Thus, sometimes, the fever stimulates the nerves controlling the muscles and these, in turn, contract violently. Remember that febrile convulsions are not as frightening as they look.

Seizures due to fever usually only last a minute or two. When your child has a fit or seizure, she will probably lose consciousness and begin to twitch uncontrollably. She will clamp her jaws shut tightly and breathe heavily. Her eyes will roll back into her head and she will froth at the mouth. She may even become incontinent. Children usually fall asleep after the convulsions have passed.

As the body temperature controls of very small children are not fully developed, they are the ones who are

prone to frequent fevers. Occurrence of fits as a result of high fever is a common phenomenon with children. These fits are known as febrile convulsions.

These fits or seizures occur in a child with high fever of over 102.2F (39C). These febrile convulsions generally occur at an early stage of other infections like viral infections, respiratory infections, etc where the fever rises rapidly.

Though febrile convulsion affects about 1 out of 20 children in the age group of one to four years, it rarely takes a serious turn.
