In brief: Diarrhea on a trip
Traveler's diarrhea can be cause by a variety of organisms including bacteria, viruses and parasites.
Symptoms include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fever and abdominal discomfort. Most cases of traveler's diarrhea can effectively be self-treated with Imodium (loperamide) and fluids. Antibiotics may be prescribed. High fever and bloody stools may indicate a more serious infection and the need to see a doctor.

In brief: Diarrhea from food
Traveler's diarrhea (td) is a bacterial diarrhea spread through water and food.
Different countries have different levels of risk for td. It is best to learn to prevent td through good hand washing, eating cooked foods served hot, and drinking filtered or bottled water. Treatment choices vary by destination.
