When traveling to a developing country, otherwise healthy people often develop diarrhea, which can sometimes cause severe illness. An antibiotic can quickly relieve the unpleasant symptoms of this condition.

Travelers' diarrhea treatment.

  • Quick online doctor visits
  • No appointment needed
  • Complete your visit in minutes without video or voice calls
  • Receive same day treatment with an effective medication regimen. Common Rxs include:
    • Azithromycin
    • Ciprofloxacin

What causes travelers' diarrhea?

  • Bacterial (90%), viral or parasitic infections
  • E. Coli, Salmonella, Shigella, Campylobacter
  • Rotavirus, Norovirus
  • Giardia Lamblia and others

How can you prevent travelers' diarrhea?
