TRAVEL CARE

If you are traveling abroad, it’s important to receive the relevant vaccines and other forms of travel care before you leave. Or, if you’ve contracted a disease during your travels, then you must seek treatment as soon as possible. Whether you’re in pursuit of preventative travel care or travel disease treatment, the infectious disease experts at ID Care’s nine locations throughout New Jersey are standing by to help.

TYPES OF TRAVEL DISEASES

Depending on where your travels take you, you will be more or less likely to contract certain diseases. Some, however, are not bound by region, making it imperative that you receive all of the recommended vaccinations before going abroad. Some of the most commonly treated travel diseases include:

  • Traveler’s diarrhea: arises from eating food or drinking water that’s contaminated with fecal matter and classifies as the most common travel illness
  • Tuberculosis: a highly contagious bacterial disease most commonly developed in the lungs
