How to Use Forehead Thermometers

Here’s a trick for getting the best results with your scanner at home: Just remember "Touch". Anytime you are touching your child’s skin with the scanner of the thermometer, you should be touching your scanner’s button. Here's how it works.

step 1

Remove the protective cap and place the thermometer head flat against the forehead.

step 2

Once the thermometer is touching the skin, press the button and keep it depressed as you glide your Exergen scanner across the forehead at the hairline. Do not go down the side of the face or the technology can’t work.

While still holding the button down on the thermometer, use the scanner to touch the soft spot behind the ear. Then let go of the button and read the temperature.
