Food poisoning and diarrhea can seem even worse when you are traveling. Try to restrict travel to areas with high standards of hygiene. Drink only bottled mineral water; never use tap water even for cleaning your teeth.

Check food is cooked thoroughly, and avoid salad, shellfish, ice, and dairy products that may not be pasteurized (for example, certain types of milk, cheese or ice cream).
