Don’t let an up­set stom­ach ruin a hol­i­day abroad. Hy­giene is im­por­tant to pre­ven­tion – wash hands thor­oughly and fre­quently, and avoid ice, tap water and un­der­cooked meat. It pays to plan ahead by tak­ing a good pro­bi­otic sup­ple­ment. Start a week be­fore your trip, as this will help crowd out the bac­te­ria that cause di­ar­rhoea, says Dr Sam Christie: “Pro­bi­otics may re­duce your risk of tummy up­set and shorten its du­ra­tion.” Try Optibac for Trav­el­ling Abroad (£10.49 for 20 cap­sules, optibacpro­bi­otics.co.uk).
