Once you’ve entered this information, Symptom Checker will present you with recommendations. For mild conditions, it might recommend self-care strategies, such as home remedies or over-the-counter medicine. For other conditions, it might suggest that you see your primary care physician, come in to a HealthExpress location, or start a virtual E-Visit or Video Visit.
