Rectal temperatures in children

To measure core body temperature accurately, the best route is rectally, especially in children younger than 4 months old. Use a rectal or oral thermometer, and lubricate one inch of the slender tip. Have somebody with you to keep your child calm and to hold him still as you insert the thermometer. Keep the thermometer in for 1 minute or as long as the manufacturer’s instructions state. If the temperature is 100.4 and higher, take your child to a paediatrician. You can immediately manage the fever with a sponge bath in lukewarm water. Do not use cold or ice baths.
