Hi.... I can understand your concern.... If your child has a febrile seizure, stay calm and: Make sure your child is on a safe surface, such as the floor, and cannot fall down or hit something hard. Lay your child on his or her side to prevent choking. This is especially important if your child has a lot of saliva coming out of the mouth. Watch for breathing problems, including any color change in your child's face.....
