Q & A

Acute diarrhea starts suddenly and lasts for about a few days. Infection by many bacteria, viruses, or germs can cause diarrhea. Infected food and water can be causes of diarrhea. While travelling, our body is at high-risk to get infected. The main concern of the infection is dehydration (lack of fluid in the body). Symptoms start with vomiting and loose stools, more times than normal. Take special care of food and water while travelling. This will help avoid diarrhea.


Norfloxacin is an antibiotic. It treats bacterial infections such as traveller’s diarrhea. Norfloxacin kills the bacteria that cause the infection. Norfloxacin is the active ingredient present in this medicine. However, start the course only when prescribed by a doctor. If you start, complete the treatment.

Is there any drug that can be taken to prevent traveller’s diarrhoea?

Taking an antibiotic medicine in order to prevent a bout of traveller’s diarrhoea is in no way recommended. Doing so, which can be referred to as antimicrobial prophylaxis, will increase the risk of unpleasant reactions and has the potential to increase resistance to the organism.


Should I take anti-diarrhoea pills?

It’s advised that you take anti-diarrhoea pills with you as a precaution when travelling abroad. However, such medication should only be taken as a last resort. We stock Loperamide, also known as Imodium, which will halt the action of your bowels when taken. It can be extremely effective in the short term but may trap harmful bacteria in the intestines which will only cause further complications later on.


If I avoid eating street food, can I avoid TD?

Not necessarily. Food that is prepared in restaurants or hotels still has the potential to cause traveller’s diarrhoea. Street food can often be unfairly held accountable for a lot of cases. Simply avoiding street food will not eliminate your chances of getting TD.


What are natural ways in which I can treat TD?

Firstly, we recommend that you eat bananas to keep your stomach in check as they are a great way to calm a bad stomach when in a foreign land. Secondly, yoghurts and yoghurt drinks are ideal to consume as they’ll contain probiotics which will benefit you greatly. Lastly, stick to a starchy diet of white rice, noodles, etc. This depends on where you are visiting, of course.
