Trip Doctor: How to Deal With Food Poisoning While Traveling
• Ask the local pharmacist for a loperamide-based drug (like Imodium), to prevent dehydration.
• Seek medical attention if you experience signs of dehydration, such as dizziness or dry mouth.
• Jump back to solid food. Start with electrolyte-fortified liquids (coconut water), then move on to rice and bananas.
• Kiss your entire vacation good-bye. Food poisoning usually subsides within two to four days.
