AAP KidsDoc Symptom Checker

AAP KidsDoc Symptom Checker

This interactive tool was developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and provides information for parents as it relates to common symtpoms your child may be experiencing.  To use the tool, hover over the area your child is experiencing symptoms and then click to explore additional choices.  You can also use the A-Z Index tab to search by symptom name.  Once you select a symptom or condition, you will see three tabs (a few protocols have a 4th tab for photos): 

  • Definition - more detail about the symptom or condition you selected.
  • When to Call - based on the condition, this will provide guidance on when you should call the doctor or seek more immediate care.
  • Care Advice - this section gives you suggestions for treatment of the condition selected. 

Please note that the symptom checker is for reference only and is not intended to be used in place of regular well exams or sick appointments when needed.

If you are looking for resources written by our physicians, please visit our protocols page.
