Travelling and diarrhoea - IMODIUM<sup>®</sup>

Title

It's common to get a stomach bug on holiday

Diarrhoea is the most common health condition suffered by tourists when abroad, and it can really upset your body’s natural rhythm – not to mention your holiday.

How to prevent travellers’ diarrhoea

Eating contaminated food and drinking contaminated water are the two most likely causes of travellers’ diarrhoea. So here are some tips on how to help stay healthy on holiday.

How to avoid drinking contaminated water:

  • Always drink bottled water or canned drinks instead of tap water
  • Use bottled water, rather than tap water, to brush your teeth
  • Avoid drinks topped up with ice cubes made from tap water
  • If you’re going swimming, be careful not to swallow any water

How to avoid eating contaminated food:

  • Check that your food has been cooked properly
  • Don’t leave food lying around on tables or sideboards
  • Wash your hands with soap before eating
  • Try to avoid raw foods washed in tap water
  • Try to avoid eating uncooked meats or seafood
  • Try to avoid eating food from street vendors
