Can't buy antibiotics in UK but having suffered horrendously in Kenya for 3 weeks with nothing but Immodium have read that an antibiotic can be bought in SE Asia to treat TT when it occurs for more than 5/6 days. Someone else on the trip had tests when he got back and it was found to be a bacterial type.
As there is a Boots chemist in CM am hoping to buy one there as a deterrant, in the hope that having it will mean we won't suffer! But that if we did suffer would at least have something to help
Have read in Lonely Planet SE Asia guide that ciproflaxin, norfloxacin are two antibiotics suggested and azithromycin for bacterial type. Does anyone know if these are the ones and if they are sold 'over the counter' at Boots in CM?
Also can rehydration solutions be bought?
I'm not being overanxious but do not want to suffer again as I did in Kenya. It ruined the trip.
Thanks for any help in advance!
