  • yes. but depending on how and where you are taking the temp you will get a different reading.

  • I use a digital thermometer and I ALWAYS take it under the armpit. But depending on how you take the temp. you'd have to give or take a few degrees.

  • Rectal temp is always most accurate... and with that you use a regular thermometer.
