Illnesses that most commonly cause febrile convulsions include viral upper respiratory infections such as flu, ear infections, or roseola (a virus causing a temperature and rash).
A diagnosis of roseola is often uncertain until the fever drops and the rash appears, so the doctor may order tests to make sure that the fever is not caused by another type of infection.
Although roseola is contagious, you probably can't protect your child from it because it is usually spread by respiratory droplets or saliva from a child who has no obvious symptoms of the illness.
Most other respiratory viruses (such as regular measles, mumps, roseola , mononucleosis [‘mono’] and bronchiolitis) don't seem to increase the normal risk for birth defects.
Take your child to the doctor if she has symptoms of roseola .
Seizures are most likely to occur early in an illness (such as roseola , colds, gastrointestinal infection) when the fever is rising quickly.
Human herpesvirus 6, the cause of childhood roseola , has been detected in the lungs of some patients with idiopathic pneumonia.

Infants infected with HHV 6 may develop roseola , a mild rash that disappears within several days.
Infection made most children ill, and symptoms included fever, irritability, runny nose, rash, roseola , and diarrhea.
