What is the normal forehead temperature?

Medical research hasn't determined an exact correlation between oral, rectal, ear, armpit, and forehead temperature measurements. Generally, the correlation of temperature results are as follows: The average normal oral temperature is 37°C (98.6°F).

In this regard, what is considered a fever on a temporal thermometer?

Your child has a fever if he or she: Has a rectal, ear or temporal artery temperature of 100.4 F (38 C) or higher. Has an oral temperature of 100 F (37.8 C) or higher. Has an armpit temperature of 99 F (37.2 C) or higher.

Do you need to add a degree to a digital thermometer?

Oral and axillary temperatures average about .5 F to 1.0 F (.3 C to .6 C) degrees below rectal, ear, and temporal readings. Add .5 to 1.0 when taking orally or under the arm to determine the comparable rectal temperature. Have a separate thermometer to use for oral than for rectal.
