Traveler’s diarrhea is an intestinal infection that happens as a result of eating or drinking contaminated food or water. It can be particularly prevalent in developing countries. Food can be contaminated in a variety of ways from pesticides to runoff.
There’s the highest risk of contracting traveler’s diarrhea in the developing world. Places like Mexico, Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The risk of infection varies depending on the type of exposure—from a fairly low risk from eating hot, cooked foods and drinking factory-sealed beverages, to a higher risk while eating raw vegetables and fruits, and drinking tap water.
Typical symptoms of traveler’s diarrhea can include:
Saying “watch what you eat” can be reductive and too broad but be aware of water and food conditions before traveling. For milder cases, you can take bisuth subsalicylate, like Pepto-Bismol (among other brands) and increase fluids and electrolytes to replenish the body.
Runway Health is focused on providing exceptional travel health care, and we work exclusively with a team of US-based, board-certified physicians from top-tier universities dedicated to ensuring that travelers have a safe and healthy journey.
Alongside a team of board-certified physicians, Runway has crafted an online questionnaire based consultation that replicates those questions you may typically be asked at a brick-and-mortar travel clinic. You may initiate this online consultation 24/7 without the need to schedule a live visit. Upon reviewing your consultation, your physician may reach out to you via our secure, HIPAA compliant chat portal if they require any additional information. Similarly, should you have any additional questions for your physician, you may contact them for chat based care before, during or after your travels.
After your online consultation, your physician will complete their initial review within 24 hours; however, in many cases this is completed in just a couple of hours.
If you’ve been waiting longer than this, please email email@example.com and we’ll take care of it.
Once your order is shipped, you will receive an email with details to track your shipment.
Orders are shipped every day except for Sunday and are typically processed within 1 business day after your order has been approved by your physician.

Taking malaria medication before going to South Africa provided my wife and me with a level of comfort that really enabled us to enjoy our 5-day safari. We felt protected the entire time we were out exploring the amazing Sabi Sands Game Reserve!

The motion sickness patches were very helpful since we were staying on a small sailboat; I don’t think my brother would have been able to keep a meal down if not for them.

I was having the best time in Mexico until I got an awful stomach bug. Thankfully, I had brought my own medication with me so I didn’t have to deal with language barriers and a local pharmacy. After a quick recovery day, I was still able to enjoy the rest of my trip.
