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.

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.
