Image Description: Often overlooked, but crucially important in quickly identifying a fever that could indicate any number of medical problems, the thermometer is a tool that is inserted beneath the tongue for about 30 seconds, returning an accurate reading of a personâ€™s overall body temperature. Because a fever is a normal reaction of the human body to pathogens, infection, and a long list of other common ailments, the thermometer is often the first line of diagnosis for doctors and parents alike. Behind our thermometer sits a pile of medications that look to be of the over the counter variety, probably aiming to treat problems like cold and flu, making them the perfect first course of action after a high temperature has been detected.
