How can you take your temperature with a thermometer?
You can use a thermometer to measure your temperature in three ways: in the mouth, in the ear, or in the rectum.
Oral thermometers are a better option for adults than babies or children, since you need to keep your mouth closed for 20 seconds and hold the thermometer in place.
A quick tip- never use the same thermometer for all three!
Make sure you purchase different thermometers and label each one for how it is used.
