    @ I J S Shet., Mangalore.

    I was thinking why all of a sudden temperature reading is taken from the wrist instead of forehead.
    Thanks for the information.

    There is strict medical advice against aiming the temperature reading gun, at the forehead, due to many adverse results. Specially the negative impact on brain and glands. Many forward entities have discontinued and take reading at wrist or inside of elbows - the readings are correct. It is surprising to note that a university has not taken this into account and continues to aim at forehead of students entering for exams. It is earnestly requested that this must be immediately reconsidered and corrected by the concerned authorities. Thank You.
