bullet

Avoid tap water, fountain drinks, and ice cubes.

bullet

Do not eat food purchased from street vendors.

bullet

Avoid dairy products, unless you know they have been pasteurized.

 

Prevent Altitude Illness and Sunburn

If you visit the Himalayan Mountains, ascend gradually to allow time for your body to adjust to the high altitude, which can cause insomnia, headaches, nausea, and altitude illness. If you experience these symptoms descend to a lower altitude and seek medical attention. Untreated altitude illness can be fatal.

Use sunblock rated at least 15 SPF, especially at high altitudes, where the risk of sunburn is greater.

To avoid infections such as HIV and viral hepatitis, do not share needles for tattoos, body piercing, or injections.

bullet

To reduce the risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases always use latex condoms.

bullet

To prevent fungal and parasitic infections, keep feet clean and dry, and do not go barefoot, especially on beaches where animals may have defecated.
