There are lots of health concerns that you might think about before you travel. Maybe you need some vaccinations, or you want to pack a small first aid kit to carry with you.

But there are also other travel health factors that you might not give a lot of thought to. It’s always good to be prepared when you’re travelling, especially when it comes to your health.

So picking up a few essential but less-shared tips could make your next trip safer or more pleasant. Take a look at some of the following ideas for making sure you stay healthy when you travel, no matter where you’re going.

? Look After Your Lady Parts

It might not be the first thing that you think about when you’re going travelling, but feminine hygiene is important. It’s always something to keep in mind, but it might be something that you especially need to consider while travelling.

Firstly, you could be visiting a different climate, where the humidity levels or the temperature could mean you’re sweaty or damp or getting dry skin. It’s a good idea to pack a BV treatment to fight against bacterial vaginosis. This is caused by an imbalance of bacteria in your vagina. It’s also essential to practice safe sex when you’re travelling.

? Learn a Few Health-related Terms

Have you ever been in a foreign pharmacy trying to mime what you need? While it’s now slightly easy to communicate in other languages with the help of tools like Google Translate, you can still find yourself at a loss for words when you need a medical term.

If it’s an issue that you anticipate, it might be useful to learn a few key words before you go. Knowing how to identify things on the shelf or ask for something that you can’t see will help you to save time and prevent confusion.

? Check the Legality of Prescriptions

Checking that you have enough of your prescription before you go travelling is common sense. But one thing that you might not think about is whether it’s legal to take your prescription into the country.

There are some medications that might be restricted, meaning you can only take a limited amount to your destination or you might not be allowed to take it at all.

If you do have to take your prescription medication with you, make sure you have a copy of your prescription ready to show.


? Research Air Quality

When you travel somewhere new, you can discover that the air quality is very different compared to back home. Sometimes it’s an improvement, and you can take the chance to get plenty of fresh air.

However, it can also be a reduction in quality, which could be an issue. If there’s poor air quality or a lot of smog, it could be uncomfortable for anyone, but anyone who has a lung or breathing condition should be especially careful.

Plan for a healthy trip before you next go travelling, and you can make sure you’re able to enjoy your travels.
