guessing she wasn't feeling well, she probably just forgot to check wanting to know whether or not she had a fever (:

I never could use a rectal thermometer on my kids, that's gross to me, under the arm works for my daughter and I have an ear thermometer for my son

can you get an accurate reading with an ear thermometer, roho? I never can :/ I prefer the auxillary method also.

on my son I can ... it won't take my daughters but the dr said it doesn't work on babies under 2, but your daughter is 2 isn't she?

roho--she's 2 1/2 but I haven't tried it on her in over a year. but I couldn't even get a good reading on myself or her father when I tried.

idk... but I just checked my daughters temp with 3 diff ones, under the arm said 101.6, pacifier thermometer said 103.1 and ear said 98.7... I know the ear is wrong cuz she definately has a fever, Im assuming the arm was the best reading, I just called her dr, waiting him to call me back

roho--with the auxillary you need to add a degree. rectal you subtract one, and oral is usually right on. hope the wee one feels better :/ my lil one isn't doing so hot either. hand foot & mouth disease, ear infections, pink eye, and something else viral is going around our daycare :/ I'm praying hers is just the viral--no temp yet, just a runny nose and crankiness :(

yeah the dr just called me back told me how much mess to give her and I put her to bed, he said it was prob a viral infection

Well, maybe it's because your mouth isn't as hot as the anus!!! Wait, my sentence doesn't sound so great!!!

Btw, the OP is a guy, and not from France. He lives in New York. The reason he didn't know is because it was one of those thermometers that can be used for either. You can buy them at any Walgreens or CVS.

why does your sister have a rectal thermometer??!? she must lock her door and "check" her temperature alot loll

Reply

there is differences in thermometers. rectal has a rounded tip which is red. oral is not as round with a blue tip. and checking your temp the axillary way is the most unacurate reading. you should try using another method.

they're typically used for infants. that is the way to get the most accurate reading of their temperature.
