Travelling abroad is exciting and enriching, but it can also expose you to potential health problems that are not present at home, such as malaria or altitude sickness for example. The best thing to do to minimise this risk is to be fully prepared before you travel, by researching your destination and making sure you have taken all necessary precautions to protect your health. Some of the most common health problems to affect travellers are malaria, travellerís diarrhoea, altitude sickness, jet lag and motion sickness.
Prescription medication can be used as both a preventative measure and a treatment, depending on what illness it is intended for. Antimalarial prescription medications, treatments for motion sickness or altitude sickness are intended to act as preventative treatments, while the Travellers' Diarrhoea Pack and jet lag treatment can be used to treat conditions if they occur.
Doxycycline for Malaria is an antibiotic that is popularly taken to prevent malaria. It is often prescribed to those journeying to South America, India, East- Asia and Africa, as these are areas where the malaria parasite has become resistant to older treatments that contain chloroquine, like Paludrine & Avloclor.View Prices & Order
Malarone can be used as both a treatment and a preventative antimalarial medication. It contains atovaquone and proguanil hydrochloride. Malarone is known to be effective in areas where the malaria parasite has built up resistance to older antimalarial medications. A course of Malarone treatment only needs to be started one to two days before the trip, meaning that it is useful for trips at short notice.View Prices & Order
Getting diarrhoea while travelling or on holiday is a sure way to spoil your time away. However, it's usually inevitable, especially for travellers who visit countries where hygiene standards aren't very high. Travellers' diarrhoea isn't just the result of poor hygiene practices; sometimes a person can become affected simply because they aren't used to the bacteria in their new environment. This is often the case in people visiting a country with a warmer or more tropical climate than their home country.View Prices & Order
