Whose name the disaster can come unexpectedly and can happen to anyone. Then what if we are sick in the middle of the journey?
Here are some tips if you are hit by the disaster:
This must be done. Do not forget to always carry mild medications that you need or most frequently used. If you are often hit by a headache, take headache medicine. For those who frequent colds, do not forget liniment and wind repellent. Prevention is to not physically challenging.
If you have ulcer disease, still keep eating regularly during the trip and bring a snack. If you are easily uprooted when tired, so do not force yourself to go into here and there until exhausted.
Ask for help
Heavy enough to fall ill and medicines that you take cannot cope, get help from people around. At the inn, receptionist or clerk that there could be asked for assistance to drive to the nearest clinic or pharmacy. Or they may have a stock of medicines.
If you are in public places like parks or public transport, better ask the police officer or official as other uniformed officers because ordinary people are not necessarily willing to be asked for help. If you are experiencing language barriers, ask them to deliver and translate.
Common drugs that can be bought without a prescription is available in department stores or grocery shop. But for the sake of quality assurance, especially when you are abroad, you should buy medicines in pharmacies.
In addition to more variety of drugs, you can also consult with a pharmacist. Usually the symptoms of the disease by knowing how you feel (if necessary with sign language), pharmacists are able to give a reference drug and first aid is needed, including the suggestion to perform certain taboos.
When the-counter medicines are no longer effective; of course, you should quickly seek expert help. Considering you’re in a strange place and unfamiliar with the practice of doctors who were there, hospitals and clinics is a more appropriate choice. Even if the hospital that you find is a special hospital for certain diseases, you can go to the emergency room and if necessary the doctor will refer a more appropriate hospital.
Have insurance, especially with an extensive network will further facilitate the care of medication administration, and then studied with both the terms and conditions that apply in your insurance.
So when an emergency happens, you know what to do and whom to contact. Had to undergo hospitalization and you do not have a fellow traveler, the hospital can help to contact the insurance company.
Contact the family
If you must undergo an intensive care though not necessarily stay in the hospital such as typhoid symptoms, you should contact your family. Maybe you do not want to make the family uneasy, but intensive care signifies something quite serious and could be lead to a fairly large impact.
In addition, consider also canceling all your travel plans because there is no point forcing you, right?
