Product description

If you ever tried to take baby's body temperature, you know how difficult this can be; the Vicks Gentle Touch Behind Ear thermometer is the answer. It measures the temperature in only 1 second and features the innovative fever insight function; a colour coded system that will tell you at a glance if baby has a fever or not. The Vicks Gentle Touch Behind Ear thermometer uses the measurement site behind the ear lobe as this is the best external place to measure the temperature since it is very close to the carotid artery which carries blood to the brain. This makes the reading extremely accurate.

  • Fast 1 second reading
