For Parents:​
 
KidsDoc Symptom Checker
What should a parent do if their child develops a fever, cough, vomiting, rash, sore throat or head injury? When can a child return to school or child care after an illness? These are medical advice questions that all parents have. Health problems can arise anytime - evenings, weekends, during work hours, when traveling, or when the doctor's office is closed.
 
KidsDoc is designed especially for these times. The care guides help parents make smart decisions on what level of care (if any) is needed and how to provide speedy symptom relief for minor illnesses or injuries that parents can manage on their own.
 
Put this app on your own phone to show parents the benefits of KidsDoc -- just $1.99!
