I need some fever help. I have two different kinds of thermometers and they are giving two completely different read outs (yes I know they are supposed to be a little diff) the under arm says 101.2 and the ear says 98.4. Which is more accurate??
Idk??, ear is normal.
Quoting marchantmom06:You shouldn't take a temp in either of those places. Either under the tongue or rectally.
How long have you been using the ear one? It has to be done exactly right, and ear wax can effect it. I would go with the under the armpit, so long as your baby wasn't screaming when it was taken.
I would rectally.
