BEST THERMOMETERS / FOREHEAD THERMOMETER & RECTAL THERMOMETER
Whether you’re looking for a forehead thermometer, ear thermometer or a rectal thermometer, we have the best thermometer for your needs. With some of the best thermometers from brands such as Braun, Vicks, Kinsa and more, you’re sure to find a thermometer that will help you manage your family’s wellness for years to come.
If you’re looking for the most accurate thermometer, you’ll want to consider a rectal thermometer. Admittedly, this is one of the less comfortable ways of taking one’s temperature, however it is by far the most accurate according to all medical professionals.
For this reason, you may want to consider choosing a rectal thermometer with a soft, flexible tip that reduces discomfort. One great option to improve comfort during rectal thermometer readings include using a lubricant such as KY Jelly to make insertion quick and painless. However, avoid using Vaseline or other petroleum jelly products, which may affect the reading accuracy.
If you are looking for a baby thermometer, it is vital to use rectal thermometers to get a true reading, especially if your child is between zero and three months of age. If you do choose a rectal thermometer for infants, look for a short-tipped rectal thermometer so you don’t need to worry about sticking it in further than necessary and causing pain.
Oral thermometers, when used correctly, can provide a very accurate reading of a patient’s body temperature. When using an oral thermometer, be sure that the patient keeps their mouth closed while it is in place.
Temporal / Forehead Thermometers
The next best option is a forehead thermometer. For self-monitoring, or to get a quick measurement on a child, a good-quality forehead thermometer can do the job. Different forehead thermometers use varied methods of getting a temporal reading; some are swiped across the forehead, some just touch the forehead and others are no-touch thermometers that read the temperature from a few millimeters away.
