Template talk:General symptoms and signs

WHOA NELLY this template needs some explanation at the top.

I saw this template on the Desquamation page, and I am completely sure that you could understand my thinking that the box held a list of symptoms of the condition.

After one brief paragraph of article, the next thing seen is "Symptoms and signs: Tachycardia - Bradycardia - Palpitation - Heart murmur - Nosebleed - Hemoptysis - Cough - Abdominal pain - Acute abdomen - Nausea - Vomiting - Heartburn - Dysphagia - Flatulence - Burping..."

I'm all, like, Holy crap! Desquamation sounds awful! Then, wait... why would "the shedding of the outer layers of the skin" be indicated by, or result in, Dysuria? Coma? Retrograde amnesia? Fainting? Anorexia?

Maybe I'm the dummy, here, but this template is confusing as hell and beyond useless. Not least because, upon investigating some of the "symptoms and signs" linked herefrom, the articles turn out to have NO information about how the particular "symptom or sign" is involved with some other condition. What's desquamation a symptom of? What's desquamation a sign of? Christ if I know.
