Fever temp?

What is considered a fever with a pacifier thermometer? I just took his temp and it was 99, is that a fever or no?

Re: Fever temp?

  • My pedi office goes by rectal temp and 100.4 is considered a fever, IDK what it is for pacifier temp, I've heard they aren't as accurate. If you still have the package for the thermometer it probably says what is considered an elevated temp, or at least how it compares to axillary or rectal temps.
