Temperature Strips (for children ages 3 months and older)
These strips contain liquid crystals that react to heat when the strip is applied to a child's
forehead. Simply apply a temperature strip to the forehead, and the strip will register body temperature by changing color. Remember, temperature strips are not precise so if you need an exact temperature reading, use a digital or glass thermometer instead. Furthermore, temperature strips are not recommended for newborns.
