For vasovagal syncope, avoiding the situations that trigger the episodes is recommended. 

For illnesses causing syncope, such as irregular heart rhythms or epilepsy, medications may be prescribed by your child's physician to help control the disease.

If your child has a heart condition, surgical repair of the heart problem may be necessary.
