Message length 300 characters recommended

A typical seizure with fever will last a few short amount of time and usually won't repeat itself. The seizure itself will generally last anywhere between a few seconds and two minutes. Longer or repeated seizures need medical attention.

During the seizure NEVER try to put something in the childs mouth. You want them on the floor out of the way of anything they can hit themselves on and if you can get them on their side that is even better. Time the seizure and be aware of exactly what happens during the seizure as medical staff may need to know if you end up needing medical help.
