    What is the treatment of Traveler's diarrhea and how can we prevent it?

    Traveler's diarrhea is very common in anyone visiting a new place esp the place is in Asia or Africa and the visitor is from a developed country. Is there any method to prevent it? What is the treatment of traveler's diarrhea? Are there any home remedies?

    The best treatment is, as ever, prevention.  Be very careful with your hygiene making sure you clean your hands before you eat and before and after you use the bathroom (a small bottle of sanitiser is useful for this).

    If you do contract diarrhea, the best thing to do is to let it run its course.  Your body is trying to expel a contaminant and it's best to allow it to do that.  Make sure you drink plenty of (clean) water and try to get electrolytes into your body too.
