ABSTRACT
This article presents pieces of medical advice for travellers. It is necessary that travellers carry basic first-aid items such as plasters, non-adherent dressings, hypoallergenic tape and antiseptics. Depending on medical facilities in-country, travellers must consider packing sterile equipment. As for medicines, travellers should carry general painkillers. Longer-term travellers should also look into taking prescription only antibiotics to treat severe diarrhea such as ciprofloxacin.
