Online Symptom Checker

Symptom checker provided by KID-DOC Pediatrics

Do you wonder what to do when your child develops a fever, cough, vomiting, rash, sore throat or head injury? The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) can help you decide what to do next using an online symptom checker tool. The tool is available on HealthyChildren.org, the official AAP Web site for parents.

Pediatric Medication Dosages

Below is a document containing recommended doses for Acetaminophen (Tylenol), Ibuprofen (Motrin & Advil), and Diphenhydramine (Benadryl).

Also important is knowing how to convert teaspoons to milliliters. The following is a brief guide:

Teaspoon = tsp.; milliliters = ml.; tablespoon = tbsp.

  • 1 tsp = 5 ml = 5 cc = 13 tbsp
  • 12 tsp = 2.5 ml. = 2.5 cc
  • 1 12 tsp = 7.5 ml. = 7.5 cc = 12 tbsp.
  • 3 tsp. = 15 ml. = 1 tbsp. = 12 ounce

Dosage Chart

Please always check the label for the type of medicine you are giving as well as to check the dosage. If you have any questions as to the correct dosage, please contact us during office hours or email us your questions via our patient portal.
