The child health app from Best Health gives you information you can rely on about your child’s health. Check the symptoms of illnesses, and find out which treatments work – and which ones don't. See the key questions to raise with your doctor, and read about the background to common medical conditions, all in plain English.

With so many websites and apps offering conflicting information about children’s health, it's difficult to know who to trust. The Best Health apps are produced by the internationally respected BMJ Group, publisher of the British Medical Journal, and have been awarded the Department of Health's Information Standard quality mark. They're based on the same high-quality medical trials that doctors rely on themselves, and are regularly updated.

So, with the child health app from Best Health, you're guaranteed a trustworthy and up-to-date source of information about health questions, such as:

•How can I help my child sleep through the night?

•What treatments can help soothe a colicky baby?

•What treatments work best for controlling my child's asthma? Are steroids safe?

•What treatments work best for getting rid of head lice?

•How do I treat a nosebleed?

•Should my child have their tonsils out?

•What are the symptoms of depression in children?

•Are antidepressants safe for young people?

•Could my child's lack of attention and high energy be signs of ADHD?

•What treatments work best for ADHD? Are they safe?

The app explains medical terms in plain English – we've been awarded the Plain English Campaign’s Crystal Mark. As well as helping you choose treatments, the app tells you what causes a condition, helps you spot it by describing the symptoms, and explains the outlook.

The child health app from Best Health gives you the information you need to make decisions about your child’s health, including helpful sections like:

•Questions to ask your doctor. As a busy parent you often don't have time to prepare a list of questions before your child's doctor's appointment. We provide ready-made lists for you

•Treatment ratings. You can quickly see what treatments work best for a condition, and which are approved by the NHS

•Harms information. Side effects from drugs and other treatments are of key concern to parents. We provide details on possible harms for the treatments we cover
