Learn answers to commonly asked questions about thermometers and temperature taking below.

What are the different types of thermometers?
The traditional way of taking a temperature is to touch a thermometer to a part of the body. With the advent of technology, you can now take a temperature remotely, without ever needing to touch the skin. No-touch, infrared thermometers are extremely popular and they’re a great replacement for old mercury glass thermometers. In addition, both types of thermometers are now digital, making them easier to read and more accurate.

Where can I take a temperature?
You can check for fever on various parts of the body. Some thermometers can be used in multiple locations; read the instructions to make sure you understand how to properly use your thermometer.

* Oral thermometers are used in the mouth
* Rectal thermometers are used in the rectum
* Axillary thermometers are used in the armpit
* Tympanic thermometers are used in the ear
* Temporal artery or infrared thermometers are used across the forehead

What is a normal temperature?
According to the Mayo Clinic1, the average body temperature is 98.6 F. However, normal body temperature can range between 97 F and 99 F or more. In addition, your temperature can vary based on the time of day, your activity level and age.

What temperature is considered a fever?
According to the Mayo Clinic2, these readings typically indicate fever:
* 99 F or higher armpit temperature
* 100 F or higher oral temperature
* 100.4 F or higher rectal, ear or temporal artery temperature

What is the benefit of a no-contact thermometer?
No-touch digital thermometers, also called infrared thermometers, have become increasingly popular during the Covid pandemic. Why? Because they’re easy to use, fast and they allow for physical distancing. They can also be used on the forehead or the ear.

What’s the best thermometer for home use?
Digital thermometers are considered the quickest and most accurate.3 Stick-style digital thermometers are versatile because they can be used orally (mouth), rectally (rectum) or axillary (armpit). Gun-style infrared digital thermometers can be used on the forehead or ear. Following the manufacturer’s instructions and cleaning the thermometer properly between use will help you get the best results.
