Kid Care: A free parent advice app for your smartphone

What should you do if your child develops a fever, cough, vomiting, rash, sore throat or head injury? When can your 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, when you’re at work or traveling or your doctor’s office is closed.

Kid Care guidelines help you make decisions on what level of medical care (if any) is needed and how to treat your child at home when it’s safe to do so. You can select from more than 100 pediatric topics and search from an alphabetical list or by body area.
