  • I have the Exergen Temporal Thermometer and I love it! Just swipe it across the forehead and it's very accurate. I got it when my son was born and it works great. I don't even have to wake him at night when he is sick to take his temperature. I just press the button, place it on the center of the forehead and slowly swipe to the temple and done! I liked it so much that I bought one for my Mom and she thinks it's great too. I got them at Walmart.

  • Digital underarm one. I can tell more accurately by touching them. But I have been doing it for years.
