What to Know About Fever and Temperature Taking
Understanding the significance of body temperature is the first step in effective fever management. A fever is not an illness in itself but a symptom that your body is fighting off an infection or some other disease. The normal body temperature for an adult ranges from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C). For children, the range can vary depending on age. When you or a family member has a fever, knowing how to accurately measure body temperature is critical.
Which Temperature-Taking Method to Use
The best method for taking a temperature can vary depending on age. For babies from birth to 2 years, a rectal measurement is the most accurate. If that's not possible, the armpit can be used as an alternative. Kids between 2 and 5 years can also benefit from rectal temperature measurements; however, the ear and armpit methods are suitable alternatives. For those older than 5 years, oral temperature taking is generally the most accurate, but ear and armpit readings can also be effective. Selecting the right method is important for getting an accurate reading, which in turn helps in deciding the next steps for health management.
