How Can I Help My Son With Stress Induced Seizures?

How Can I Help My Son With Stress Induced Seizures?

My wee one has seizures on and off since he was 4 months old but I noticed that they are more frequent when he's teething, having growing pains or is sick with a fever. They are out of my control with some being natural with babies. I've tried cool wash cloths when he's teething and I help as much as I can with his growing pains but with the shortage of baby medicine is there any other way I can help with his pain?
