Parasites = >Protozoa

Have you suffered from Holiday Sickness when you’ve been on holiday or immediately after you’ve returned home?

If you’ve been affected by Parasites of any kind, there’s a good chance you’re entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Protozoa are eukaryotic organisms that can range in size from tiny, single-celled organisms to worms that can be seen by the naked eye. They are part of the animal kingdom but are not considered to be plant, animal or fungi.

Some protozoa are parasites of animals that use other living things – like your body – for food and a place to live. You can get them from contaminated food or water, a bug bite, or sexual contact. Some parasitic diseases are easily treated and some are not.

Contaminated water supplies can lead to bacterial infections such as giardia. Cats can transmit toxoplasmosis, which is dangerous for pregnant women and those with an immunosuppression such as HIV. Others, like malaria, are common in certain regions of the world (India and sub-Saharan Africa).

If you are travelling, it’s important to drink only water you know is safe. Prevention is especially important. There are no vaccines for parasitic diseases and treatments can be highly invasive. Some medicines are available to treat parasitic infections.

HolidaySicknessClaims.co.uk recommend you follow these guidelines to avoid illness whilst on holiday:

  • Use only bottled water for drinking and brushing your teeth.
  • Frequently use an alcohol-based hand gel.
  • Avoid Ice as it may have been made from tap water
  • Avoid street food
  • Avoid salads and any uncooked fruits and vegetables (these may have been handled unhygienically). Wherever possible, always wash fruit and vegetables before eating.

In the event that you do get ill Holiday Sickness Claims advise that you seek medical attention whilst on holiday as this has two advantages, it means you will get medical attention and any serious signs which may be missed by you can well be spotted by a doctor, and proof of sickness from a medical professional will greatly increase your chances of making an eligible and successful holiday sickness claim upon your return.

Whilst ill it is important that you drink plenty of bottled water and use rehydration salts when possible. It is advised that you take rehydration salts with you on your trip, along with some other essentials such as Cipro (fights bacteria in the body) Imodium (treats the symptoms of Diarrhoea) and a thermometer to measure your temperature.

It is your tour operators’ ultimate responsibility to make sure you are provided with a safe, clean and hygienic hotel.
