Diarrhea is defined as increase of defecation frequency for 3 times or more a day or the changing of stool consistency in soft or liquid one. This could be sign of inflammation within our gastrointestinal tract. One of the etiologies for this condition is infection from viral, bacteria, worm infestations, or parasites. The source of transmission is from contaminated food or water. This is also happen during traveling in developing countries, such as Indonesia. Bali is one of international tourist destination in Indonesia, and traveller’s diarrhea is a quite common finding here. When you have diarrhea, it will be better to take 2-3 liters amount of water a day to prevent dehydration, and find nearest doctor to evaluate and differentiate the etiologies of your diarrhea. In our clinic, we treat diarrhea around 3 cases per day. Some of them were caused by Salmonella infection, Amoeba infection, and the rest was caused by other bacterial infection. To treat diarrhea is better than to have diarrhea persist during traveling. Any antibiotic will be prescribed after thoroughly clinical judgment which will be supported by clinical condition and laboratory test examination.
