104.8° auxiliary temp in a 3 year old. Is it true that you're supposed to add a whole degree to that?

I thought that but I think she might be too old, I don't want to hurt her if she moves.

You won't and it's super quick. It feels like nothing.
Give that kid some Tylenol and check again in an hour

No, you don't add a degree. If you're concerned call the dr and tell them what the temp reading was and where you took it.

If it's under the arm, you add a temp. If it's in the mouth or bum it is what it is. But bum is more accurate. And it won't hurt her. I say for a baby 103 would be my limit.
