What is a normal infrared temperature of the forehead?
It would be normal to read an actual surface temperature of the forehead skin between 91° F and 94° C when using a general purpose infrared thermometer. The normal temperature of the forehead skin can vary by several degrees depending on the environment (indoor or outdoor), movement, sweat, direct heat or air conditioning, etc. We warn readers to extrapolate this normal range to other age groups because the normal ranges of eardrum temperature are different in newborns. Children and adults were previously reported. While 98.6°F (37.0°C) is typically considered a “normal temperature,” some studies have shown that normal body temperature can range from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.1°C).
Another study found that the difference between the ear thermometer and forehead thermometer measurements was between 2.1-2.2 °C (3.78-3.96 °F) in two experiments.
