Be prepared for diarrhoea

Days are precious when you’re on holiday or when you’ve got a big event coming up. Maybe it’s a wedding, dinner with the in-laws or a job interview, but whatever it is, the last thing you need is a bout of diarrhoea and to be chained to the toilet.

Traveller’s Diarrhoea

Traveller’s diarrhoea is common and affects millions of people who travel to developing countries each year. Contact with contaminated food and water is the most common cause of traveller’s diarrhoea. Be prepared and make sure you pack some oral rehydration sachets and anti-diarrhoea medication such as Gastro-Stop or Gastro-Stop Plus for your next holiday. If you do find yourself struck down by diarrhoea, remember to stay hydrated and drink plenty of fluids. If you have other symptoms such as a fever or notice blood in your stools, make sure you seek medical advice first before taking any anti-diarrhoea medications.
  • Although traveller’s diarrhoea is rarely life threatening, it can strike at any time.
  • One in five travellers will end up being bedridden for a day
  • One in three will have to change their holiday schedule because of diarrhoea.
