Please keep in mind that, like any skin temperature, the temperature at the temporal area might differ from the core body temperature (eg obtained by a rectal probe), which is due to a basic physiologic effect called vasoconstriction. Since vasoconstriction can occur in the early stages of fever, resulting in a cool skin effect, the recorded temperature using a forehead thermometer may be suspiciously low. This condition can typically last for up to one and a half hours, so it is suggested that a second temperature reading is taken after that time. Skin temperature of babies reacts very quickly on ambient temperature. Therefore do not take a measurement while or after nursing; skin temperature may be lower than core temperature.
If the patient's measurement is not consistent we recommend checking the core temperature with an alternative method such as an ear or rectal thermometer.
