Travelan, Every Travellers Best friend

For people from developed parts of the globe travelling to developing countries, there is a certain illness which is regarded as their most common enemy that can strip off all the productivity and enjoyment they can have during the course of their trip. This illness is called travellers diarrhoea (TD) or often called as bali belly, delhi belly, Montezumas revenge, Tourist trot, and other names. This particular travel nuisance is characterized by increased frequency in bowel movements (stools), accompanied with abdominal cramps, abdominal bloating, toilet urgencies, nausea, vomiting, mild fever and blood in stools or dysentery. And in general, TD can be caused by bacterial, viral or parasitic infection.

Another bad news is there is no available vaccine that can prevent travellers diarrhoea, though there are several treatments for diarrhoea present and being used today.
