don't buy

I just bought 2 weeks ago and it seemed to work good, but then it started taking longer for it to get temperature. Now it Shuts off automatically after a minute and i don't get a reading. I also noticed it is not the right temperature it reads under what it actually is.

No, I don't recommend this product

Terrible thermometer

This thermometer is not accurate reading and caused my newborn fever to prolong until she was hospitalized for few days due to high fever. The thermometer reading temperature is below the actual one. I wouldn't have given any star cause is not accurate at all, defeat a purpose of a thermometer but it is required in order to proceed.

No, I don't recommend this product

Would Not Recomment

Bought this the other day because of the Vicks name. In a 10 minute period my temp went from 98.8 - 99.9 - 98.6 - 99.6. Which temp is right. Sorry I threw the package away or I would return it. Not worth the money it costs.

No, I don't recommend this product
