Giardiasis is infection of the digestive system due to the presence of Giardia intestinalis parasites (aka Giardia lamblia or Giardia duodenalis).
Causes of Giardiasis
Most holidaymakers are infected with Giardiasis after drinking water which has been contaminated with Giardia parasites or if they come into direct contact with someone who has already been infected by Giardiasis.
Giardiasis is mainly passed on where infected people forget to wash their hands properly after going to the toilet and then they touch or handle food which will be eaten by other people. Food can easily be contaminated if it is rinsed in Giardiasis infected water so it is crucial to have good hygiene, wash hands with soap regularly, and take extra care when drinking water in areas with historically poor sanitation levels such as the Dominican Republic, Egypt and Tunisia.
Symptoms of Giardiasis
- Abdominal pain
- Aches and pain
