When you or a member of your family is sick, keeping track of internal body temperature can be extremely important. High body temperatures can sometimes mean more serious problems like a possible infection, flu, or other serious illness. Thermometers help make it easy for parents to take a quick temperature of their baby or child, and CVS offers a wide range of products to choose from. You can shop the selection of home thermometers and search them by price, life stage, brand name, ratings, and more.

Smart Thermometers Make Temperature-Taking Easy

Today's modern thermometer is easier to use than ever before. Digital readings can make it much simpler for you to get a quick glimpse of someone's body temperature. Some models will even store several recent readings in the unit so you can track progress and determine whether or not yourself or your loved one will require an urgent visit to the doctor. These new "smart thermometers" typically offer precise, quick readings for easier use at home.

Methods of Taking Temperature

While oral thermometers have long been a popular choice, more modern styles can make taking a person's temperature easier than ever before. When it comes to little ones, try a pacifier thermometer or one that easily fits under the baby's underarm. Temporal thermometers and in-ear thermometers are quick and easy to use, and they typically work effectively on practically every age group. Thanks to these modern thermometers, making a fast and accurate determination can be a lot simpler.

When to Head to the Doctor

Safe body temperature levels can vary slightly depending on a person's age. However, in most cases, when someone has a high body temperature that lasts for a prolonged period of time, it's best to see your health care provider. Many newer thermometer models include Bluetooth capability that can connect to your smartphone and can provide detailed insight as to when or why a temperature reading could be dangerous. Pay close attention to your patient's temperature and check it every few hours. If it spikes dangerously, it's recommended that you see a doctor immediately.

Practice Good Thermometer Hygiene

When you take someone's temperature orally or through the ears, a probe cover is recommended. This will help keep the actual thermometer probe clean and can help prevent possible infection. CVS sells a wide range of probe covers to fit a variety of thermometer styles. If you don't have a cover, clean the probe thoroughly with alcohol and allow it to dry before re-use.
