Diagnose Your Ills With the ‘iTriage’ App
When you were a kid and you came down with a stomach flu, you scraped your knee running around the neighborhood, or you burned your hand on a hot coil on the stove, you ran to your mom trusting that she would know how to fix it. And somehow she always did, whether she gave you some cola syrup, disinfected a cut, held your hand under running water and then slathered on some aloe, or rushed you to the doctor's office or hospital for care. Now that you're an adult, of course, you realize that your mother was probably panicking on the inside, although she did a great job of hiding it. While most of us can use the knowledge passed down by parents or teachers to treat basic ailments once we get to be adults, the truth is that the vast majority of the population lacks definitive medical know-how, which is not a surprise considering how many years of schooling are required to become a doctor. But with the wide world of apps at our fingertips, it's easier than ever to find the information you need when you suffer from an illness or injury. And the iTriage application can be a great help.
