Winning Wednesdays: Each week I post new giveaways on Wednesdays – most end the following Tuesday. 

I really don’t like trying to take my kids temperatures!  If they are young you may have to take it rectally (poor kids).  Older kids may have to hold the thermometer in their mouth – which we all know is hard to do without moving it!  That’s why I’m glad this week 3 Readers will Win Exergen Temporal Scanners!  These cost around $34 each for a total value of $100!!

I was able to try one of these in my home. I’ve seen these used in the hospitals and was grateful that when my son had his appendix out they used them.  It was so much easier for him after he fell asleep to have his temperature taken because they just touched his forehead and make a small “swipe.”  He could continue to sleep to get the rest he needed!  It’s the same way when you own one of the Exergen Temperal Scanners in your home!   The kids can stay asleep or at least just lay there without any hassle!  They are the fastest most accurate thermometer I have ever used!  The Scanner is really easy to use as well!  I was worried about getting it EXACTLY in the right spot, but  it’s so easy!  In fact I got sick after I had it and was easily able to take my own temperature!  For those of you who are wondering if it can be as reliable and accurate as a rectal thermometer there are new Clinical Studies that support the the Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer as replacements for Rectal Thermometers!  This is really nice to know because they are less invasive!

Exergen Temporal Scanners are sold at Walmart, Rite Aid, Target, Costco, Sam’s Club, BJ’s, Kroger, Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Walgreens, and other retailers for around $34!  To me that’s a great price!!  Last year I paid around $10 for a digital thermometer that lasted only a few months!  I was really disappointed!  The Exergen Temporal Scanners are very affordable! Sometimes stores will run special deals so make sure you look for the best deal when you purchase one!  Plus you don’t need to buy covers for them!  You just use them and can wipe them with a little bit of alcohol to clean them.
