Just now went to pharmacy trying to get essentials forehead temp is 37.6 when arrive ( I’m wearing cap ) but after rest a few mins at the entrance of the pharmacy temp is 37.4’c. Went back shower and change ear temp is 36.4 but forehead temperature is between 37-37.2’c.
We understand your worries especially with the development of symptoms indicative but not exclusive of COVID-19.
For you information, WHO listed common symptoms for COVID-19 infection as follows:
There are various types of thermometer. Depending on the thermometer that you have bought, you may use it on your forehead or ears. Please read the theremometer manual included in the packaging. For your information, ear temperature will be higher in comparison to forehead. Therefore, please refer to manual if your thermometer should measure temperature of your ears or forehead.
You may consult a MOH doctor by clicking Ask Doctor at the Ministry of Health website (COVID-19 Portal) to ask any health issues related to COVID-19 starting from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm.
After 5.00 pm till 12.00 am, please direct your enquiries to our DoctorOnCall website at this link DoctorOnCall Tanya.
