Commonly known as tourista, traveller’s diarrhea occurs as a result of a bacteria, a virus, or sometimes even a parasite.
Although often associated with South America, travellers’ diarrhea also strikes tourists visiting Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
If you’re planning to travel to one or more of these parts of the world, it’s likely that your nurse will recommend an antibiotic or Dukoral®.
Available as an oral vaccine, Dukoral® is administered a few weeks before your departure to allow you to fully enjoy your trip.
Acute mountain sickness, which can occur during stays at elevated altitudes, may cause symptoms that are severe enough to disrupt the smooth planning of your activities.
Preventive medication is one of the best ways to reduce the impact of the onset of this condition.
However, before prescribing a preventive treatment against mountain sickness, our doctors will ensure that this is appropriate in accordance with your state of health.
