Travel Sickness

Travel SicknessTravel sickness or motion sickness is very common, especially in children and women and can make one feel dizzy, sick or even vomit. It is thought that everyone can potentially get motion sickness, but that some people are more vulnerable than others. It is caused by repeated unusual movements, usually when travelling by boat, car, plane or train. Motion sickness can also be triggered by anxiety or strong smells, such as food or petrol.

Several medications can be used to treat motion sickness. It is usually better to take medication before your journey to prevent symptoms developing.

Malaria is widespread in many tropical and subtropical countries and occurs in over 100 countries and more than 40% of the people in the world are at risk. It is usually recommended you take antimalarial tablets if you are visiting an area where there is a malaria risk.

Symptoms of malaria include fever and flu-like illness, including shaking chills, headache, muscle aches, and tiredness. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea may also occur. Malaria may also cause anaemia and jaundice because of the loss of red blood cells.
