Should I visit a nurse or a doctor, or is self-care enough?

You can fill out the Omaolo symptom assessment wherever and whenever.  After filling out the symptom assessment, you will be given reliable instructions for treating your ailment.

If your symptoms need to be assessed by a professional, you can send the symptom assessment that you have filled out to your health station. We will reply to you the same day, if possible!

In Omaolo, you have access to a wide range of self-care instructions for various ailments.
