- Depending on the age it is recommended to use one area or another
- The mouth is one of the most recommended areas to measure the temperature
When we think we have a fever or ask to have our temperature measured, we usually go to the forehead, either with the lips or the hand. But is it really the best place to calculate it? Contrary to what we can think of as a more extended area, the forehead is not the best place to take body temperature well.
For example, think about when you calculate the temperature with a thermometer. You use your mouth for it, right? And it is that the mouth is undoubtedly one of the most recommended places to calculate the temperature, but for this we must not drink cold food or drinks for 10 minutes prior to the measurement. Of course, in the case of children it will always be advisable to use another place.
Another of the most recommended areas to measure body temperature is to use the armpit, certainly one of the classic parts when we talk about thermometers. Unlike in the mouth, the armpit is perfect for measuring the temperature in children. Same case for the ear, one of the methods used for both adults and children.
Finally, we will also mention the rectal area, optional in the case of the elderly but nothing recommended for the little ones in the house. Also mention that in cases of hemorrhoids or bleeding in that area, we should completely advise against this area. Now that you know the different recommended body parts to measure body temperature, you can calculate this much more accurately without resorting to the forehead.
