Traveller's diarrhoea

Traveller's diarrhoea

Traveller’s diarrhea is most commonly caused by the E.coli and Salmonella bacteria. These organisms spread via oral and fecal routes. Eating contaminated food with dirty hands cause diarrhea. It can be prevented by adopting adequate hygiene measures while travelling e.g. washing hands before eating and after using toilets. Treatment includes rehydration, anti diarrheal drugs e.g. loperamide. Antibiotics are recommended when there is high grade fever, blood or mucous in the stool.
