Our Approach to Treating

Travel-Related Infections

Travelers may return home and develop illnesses, especially those who have visited parts of the world where certain infectious diseases are prevalent. Symptoms of travel-related infections vary depending on the disease and include fever, diarrhea, vomiting, rashes, and muscle aches. Any international traveler who develops fever in the weeks after returning home should be evaluated. Although there are many potential causes of fever, travel-related infections such as malaria, dengue, chikungunya, and typhoid fever are among the reasons a fever develops after a trip abroad.  

NYU Langone physicians identify the cause of an illness or fever in returning travelers. They can then develop a treatment plan based on the diagnosis.

Treatment for Travel-Related Infections

Medication is used to treat most travel-related infections. NYU Langone doctors decide which medication is best for you based on the organism causing the infection and the part of the world where you acquired it.
