Sick kid? How to assess how sick


(Melissa Cannarozzi/The Washington Post)

It’s the Symptom Checker on the Healthy Children Web site. The site is affiliated with the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the program allows users to explore what various symptoms could mean. It also explains when a child can return to school.

The interactive set up is beyond easy.

Of course, no computer program can substitute for a doctor giving the all clear, but as we enter the season of sickness it’s a site to check out.
