When you travel abroad, especially to countries further afield, one of the potential travel accidents you may have is food poisoning.
Why is food poisoning more likely to occur overseas?
The food we experience abroad is often very different from our regular diet. It could be spicier, richer or simply a different ratio of meat and vegetables. Travel accidents such as food poisoning can occur even if the food is cooked correctly. The reason for this is that your stomach is not used to digesting such a different variety of food and so it can react in a bad way.
What is the best way of dealing with food poisoning?
If and when you suffer from a travel accident, the first thing to remember when dealing with food poisoning is to ensure you stay hydrated. You need to make sure that you keep your fluid levels up even if you aren’t keeping anything down. If you become dehydrated, your travel accident could turn into something much more severe.
What if I can’t keep hydrated?
If you are so ill and are suffering from your travel injury so badly that you become dehydrated, you may need to be admitted to hospital. If you are continually being ill with no sign of your symptoms easing up, you should always seek medical advice so that the travel accident doesn’t turn into something more serious.
