    I several other places I’ve read about bringing temperature down during the seizure, with for example a damp sponge or even an ice pack. Does anyone here have any advice about this please?

    Hi,

    Do you mean bringing the temperature down during the seizure or beforehand?

    Seizures usually last for a short time (1 minute or 2) and the best thing you can do during them is make sure the child’s airways are clear and they are free from harm by knocking into anything. You should also call emergency services (999 in the UK, 000 in Australia and 911 in the US).

    As for reducing temperature beforehand, research is inconclusive as to whether this has any affect in preventing seizures in the first place.

    Regards,
