My daughter had roseola at 18 months. She was admitted to the hospital due to diarrhea and dehydration. On the second day her fever spiked to 105.9 at which time she suffered a seizure. She has since then had seizures at age 3 and then when going thought puberty. She is now 23 and on a daily medication for seizures. It's very important to keep the fever down. It can cause permanent damage.

My grandson had a seizure with roseola and it scared the life out of me. We only knew that he had a fever not roseola. We called the emergency medical services (EMS), took him to the hospital, and they gave him Tylenol and his fever went down. That night and the next day the fever spiked again over and over. We took him to a different hospital and again they never said anything about roseola, just gave him Tylenol and they sent him home. I never experienced this with my child and this was very scary. His doctor found it out the third day. The seizure happened on at Saturday and the emergency room was the only place to go. So sad that the doctors at either hospital didn't take blood or do anything to find out what was wrong with our grandson.
