MDAnywhere has you covered!

Being medically prepared for a trip is of utmost importance to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. Prior to embarking on any journey, it is essential to consult with a healthcare professional who can provide medication for prevention and treatment. Additionally, it is prudent to pack a well-stocked travel first aid kit containing essentials like bandages, antiseptics, pain relievers, and any prescription medications. Being aware of potential health risks, practicing good hygiene, staying hydrated, and being mindful of food and water safety are additional measures that contribute to a medically prepared and worry-free journey. Here are some things to consider and pack:
Are you prone to sea or motion sickness?
Motion sickness is a common condition characterized by a range of unpleasant symptoms that occur when the brain receives conflicting sensory information about motion. The primary cause of motion sickness is a disconnect between what the eyes see, the inner ear's sense of balance, and the body's perception of motion. When these inputs conflict, it can lead to symptoms like nausea, dizziness, sweating, headache, and vomiting. Activities such as traveling by car, boat, or plane, as well as virtual reality experiences or amusement park rides, can trigger motion sickness.

Don't suffer unnecessarily. A medication patch applied before travel can lessen the symptoms.

Traveler's diarrhea, also known as Turista, is a common gastrointestinal condition that affects individuals who travel to developing countries or regions with poor sanitation and contaminated water sources. It can even be found in the ice within your drink. The primary cause of this ailment is bacterial infection, most commonly Escherichia coli (E. coli), but other pathogens such as Salmonella, Shigella, and Campylobacter can also be responsible. The symptoms typically manifest within a few days of exposure and include watery diarrhea, abdominal cramps, bloating, nausea, vomiting, and occasionally fever. While traveler's diarrhea is usually self-limiting and resolves within a few days, it can be an uncomfortable and disruptive experience for travelers, emphasizing the importance of preventive measures such as practicing good hygiene, drinking safe water, and avoiding high-risk foods.

Environmental allergies differ depending on geographical location. Allergies can also trigger asthma symptoms in some people. When a person with asthma comes into contact with an allergen, such as pollen, dust, or pet dander, their immune system overreacts and produces an inflammatory response in the airways. This inflammation can cause the airways to narrow and make it difficult to breathe, leading to asthma symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath.

If you are an asthmatic and in need of a rescue inhaler or other regular allergy medication, our doctors can help.
