Rectal Thermometer...??

I forgot how to read it! I feel so dumb. I just took my sons temp. it was 99.4. Am I supposed to add 1 or subtract 1? Or is it actually 99.4?

  • Well it IS 99.4... but that is a normal rectal temp, it should be between 98.5-99.9. But if you want to compare it to an oral temp then you subtract.... so 98.4
