      Is that rash on your leg the first stages of flesh-eating bacteria, or do you need to change your laundry detergent? WebMD might be able to save you a trip to the doctor's office or the emergency room. The service hosts a wide range of medical articles and diagnosis utilities. It also has a nifty, 3-D diagnosis checker that lets you choose where aches and pains are in order to help you figure out what's wrong.

      The service is best known for its explanatory pages about medications, where users can quickly search for a drug by its name or class, then drill deeper to find out common names and uses. It also has a fairly comprehensive guide of what to do in emergency situations as well as how to treat that nagging cold.
