Malaria is a medical emergency! If you suspect that you might have malaria and/or are acutely unwell you should contact your GP, Out of Hours Service or local A&E Department as soon as possible. Remember to mention that you have been travelling.
Travellers` Diarrhoea is the most common health problem encountered by international travellers. Depending mainly on the destination, travellers` diarrhoea may affect up to 80% of travellers with 20% confined to bed. As always, prevention is better than cure.
Most cases of travellers` diarrhoea will resolve by themselves given time, rest and adequate fluid replacement. However, a nasty bout can spoil a holiday or business trip. In 5 – 10% of cases it can also lead to post –infectious irritable bowel syndrome.
