When NOT use an ear thermometer? | Ear Temperature Fever Measurement

Please avoid using an ear thermometer if there is excess “wax” in the ear of the person having their temperature checked. People normally have some wax in their ears. If there is too much wax to check an ear temperature, it may produce an inaccurate reading.

Do not use an ear thermometer when a person has a sore ear, an ear infection, or if they just had ear surgery.



A Note

As always, please consult your medical professional if the fever persists after a few days despite medication.
