Travellers’ diarrhoea is the most common illness in those travelling from resource-rich to resource-poor countries and occurs in 20%-60% of travellers. Destination is the most important influence on risk. The standard of hygiene in cafes, restaurants and bars also contributes to diarrhoea risk. Travelling “rough” and being more adventurous in eating habits is likely to increase the risk. The effects of diarrhoea are generally greater in the very young, the elderly and those with special health needs.
Eating contaminated food and drinking contaminated liquids are the main ways of catching travellers’ diarrhoea. Changes in bowel habit can be caused by stress, unfamiliar food, increased alcohol consumption and hot weather. However most episodes of diarrhoea are caused by infections.
