|What should i do about these symptoms?
A sore throat – lasting for three days?....... My child’s itchy rash?....... A bump on the head?
These are medical questions all of us have. Health problems can arise anytime - evenings, weekends, when you're traveling or when your doctor's office is closed. When symptoms of illness or injury do occur, you should know that quality medical advice is always available.
SymptomMD and KidsDoc are mobile applications designed especially for these times. They are symptom checkers, available on iTunes and the Android Market, to help you determine how urgently you or a loved one should seek medical attention (if at all) and what steps can be taken in the meantime for symptom relief.
SymptomMD is the full age range application for men, women and children. KidsDoc is the pediatric-only application co-branded by the American Academy of Pediatrics as a complement to their parent-resource website, www.healthychildren.org. (Outside of the U.S., the children's app is distributed by the name Pediatric SymptomMD.)
The apps are Symptom Checkers. They are not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment; they are for informational purposes only.
