During my internship, I saw how some people believe that when a child convulses, heating their legs with hot water can stop the seizure, even if it's epilepsy.

A mother once 'boiled' her son's feet, causing severe burns that almost killed the child.

Seisures, whether due to fever (febrile convulsions), epilepsy, etc., are best treated with anticonvulsants while treating the underlying cause. This is best done in hospitals.

At home, once your child starts convulsing, there’s nothing you can do to stop it.
