Reviews
Vicks Thermometer, Gentle Touch, Behind Ear, 1 thermometer is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Runs dangerously low When my daughter recently woke up very fussy with a burning forehead I used this thermometer to take her temp and it registered at 97.9. That seemed low so i took my own temp as a comparison and it was 93.5. When I took her temperate rectally it registered 105.3! I am just glad I trusted my instincts and didn't rely on that piece of garbage thermometer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Amazing premise, frustrating results! The thermometer does not give an accurate reading. It gives a significantly different reading every time we try it-moments apart. Worse, it often fails to catch a fever at all-- today: it reads between 97.7 and 98.8 each time but a $5 thermometer (and our baby's daycare) are reporting 101.2 and 101.7. This thermometer has absolutely lost my trust.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product has Poor battery performance Would not recommend- poor battery performance. I am a nurse on school bus for special needs children- this product is easy to use- especially when you need to be quick with kids with varying disabilities! Need to change battery every 3 days! Definitely need to change so there is an on and off switch to preserve battery!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Simple... Does not work It only reads 96.9. We have tried new batteries, different times and people... no matter how many times we try, we get the same reading. Very disappointed in this product and temperature is not something to not have come up right.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful, horribly inaccurate I've been trying to use this thermometer for months and it almost always reads 96.9 or 97.7. It is horribly inaccurate. Complete waste of money.
