comment
" ...  It was always accurate, but with squirming kids and them possibly sweating or having other things on their head, I would sometimes have to try more than once. ... You just hold it close to their head and push and release the button.  ...  "
comment
" ...  So the concept of a forehead thermometer that DOUBLES as an in-ear thermometer is quite interesting. ... Not too heavy, but well balanced and easy to hold against someone else or on yourself. ... I have an Ear-Thermometer that has disposable probe covers.  ...  "
