Thankfully, a new product is on the market: the Exergen Temporal Scanner.
What is it, you ask?
From their website: The Temporal Scanner Thermometer is a totally non-invasive system with advanced infrared technology providing maximum ease of use with quick, consistently accurate measurements. Advanced, patented technology measures temperatures with a gentle stroke across the forehead.
So with my nut-job of a husband, this thermometer is an answer to my daughter's prayers. I have to admit, at first I didn't like it. I didn't feel like it was getting an effective reading. I felt silly constantly running the scanner across her forehead.
Of course, once I read the directions a bit more and checked out the FAQ they sent me, I found a perfectly acceptable spot (behind the ear) that I felt gave me the best results. And now, I love it. No more poking in the tushy in this household. The Exergen Temporal Scanner has a permanent place in our First Aid kit.
And guess what, you can be as lucky as me! The generous people over at Exergen have given me one of their Temporal Scanners to give to one of my reader!
