  • Fevers In Children
    Information about fevers in young children, including taking temperatures, causes and treatments.

  • How to Interpret your Childs Temperature
    The idea of how to take a temperature and interpret it has be become so confusing. There are mercury thermometers, digital thermometers, ear thermometers, ones that read differently depending upon where you stick the thermometer, and some that are supposed to work by attaching them to the forehead.

  • How to Take an Armpit Temperature
    If you are not comfortable taking a child's rectal temperature, or if your doctor advises, you may take a baby's or young child's temperature by putting the glass thermometer in the child's armpit.

  • How to Take your Toddlers Temperature Age 2
    The most accurate way to find out your toddler's temperature is to use a digital or glass (mercury) rectal thermometer. If your child seems just plain miserable when you try taking his rectal temperature, you can try taking his armpit or "axillary" temperature.

  • Taking Temperature
    Along with bandages, gauze and tweezers, a must for every home first-aid kit is a thermometer--probably the most important medical device a new parent will use. There are four types of thermometers: those placed on the skin, in the mouth, in the ear, and rectally. For newborns, use only the digital ear and rectal thermometers. Skin readings aren't considered accurate enough for newborns, and oral types can't be used.
