Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

EEG - electro-encephalogram (They attach lots of little wires to the head to detect the brainwaves. This is not painful or harmful in any way)

Classical fever convulsions do not necessarily require any further investigations. A paediatrician is specialised to see children under 13-15yrs of age.
