The first one sounds like a febrile seizure and the second one may be too ( at 99). The fever need not be very high.. sometimes its the rate of rise also that is important. Febrile seizures are quite common and generally the risk decreases after 5-6 years. As they are usually short episodes (less than 2 minutes) the risk of any brain damage is negligible. You will need to keep fever medicines handy to be able to give them early as needed. also, consult a paediatric neurologist once for a complete examination and review of episodes. Take care,
