The common cold, flu, COVID-19, and other viruses are currently circulating among us simultaneously. All of these viruses can cause miserable symptoms, but for many, a fever can be especially concerning.

If you’re concerned that you or someone in your family may be running a fever, the best way to confirm it is by taking their temperature. Let’s review some basics about thermometers and temperature readings.

There are several types of thermometers you can use to measure temperature safely and accurately at home including:

 

Digital thermometers. This type of thermometer uses electronic heat sensors to record body temperature. Digital thermometers provide the quickest and most accurate readings and can be used on children of all ages and adults. It can be used three different ways, including in the rectum, under the tongue, or under the arm, to get a temperature reading. Note: Don’t use the same thermometer to take temperatures by mouth and in the rectum.

Electronic ear thermometers. This type of thermometer measures the temperature inside of the eardrum and is appropriate for some infants (do not use on babies that are younger than six months old), toddlers and older children, and adults. While it is quick and easy to use, you must take care to use it properly by placing the tip correctly or the reading won’t be accurate. The accuracy of a reading can also be affected if there is too much earwax.

Forehead thermometers. This type of thermometer measures heat waves on the side of the forehead and can be used on children of any age and adults. While it is quick and non-invasive, forehead thermometers are considered less accurate than digital thermometers. Readings can be affected by direct sunlight, cold temperatures, a sweaty forehead, or holding the scanner too far away from the forehead.

Other types of thermometers, such as plastic strip thermometers, smartphone temperature apps, and glass mercury thermometers, are not recommended.
