1. An ear-type thermometer having a probe formed with a probe opening at its tip which houses a temperature detection element which detects ambient temperature and an infrared detection element which detects infrared light emitted from a temperature measurement site within the aural cavity, and measures body temperature based on detection results from said two detection elements, the ear-type thermometer comprising:

  • a probe cover which can be detachably provided onto said probe and covers said probe opening;

    a detection means which detects attachment/detachment of said probe cover onto said probe; and

    a correction means which corrects, based on the detection result of said detection means, body temperature which is measured based on detection results of said two detection elements.
