Febrile seizures are fits that occur in some infants and young children when their temperature is very high, usually around 39 to 40 degrees. This is usually caused by upper respiratory infections particularly ear infections. Children usually outgrow this problem by the age of 3 years or so. At the first sign of a fever it is important to give Panado and not to dress the baby too warmly. It often helps to sponge the baby down with water.
