Butt Problems (Travelers' Diarrhea)

Travelers' Diarrhea (TD) is rarely life threatening.  The best way to avoid it is by paying close attention to your choices of beverages and foods.

TD usually lasts from 3 to 7 days.  The most important thing to remember if you get TD is to prevent dehydration.  Try to get back in as much fluid as comes out.

Some good medications for "butt bout" are ciprofloxacin and lomitil.
