19 Diseases You Can Get While Traveling
While Chikungunya may look like a fun word, it’s not fun to contract. The mosquito-borne disease (you’re starting to hate those darn things even more, aren’t you?) causes joint pain, fever, muscle aches, headaches, and rash. Once again, there’s nothing to prevent Chikungunya other than taking precaution against mosquito bites.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Lowered inhibitions from vacation plus booze tends to lead to behavior even more reckless than a frat party. As we learned from health class, nothing can prevent an STD other than abstinence or a condom. So, if you’re going to hump, wrap it up!
It’s pneumonia, but worse. As if the other diseases on this list haven’t scared you enough, you can catch this one from stale air circulated by building air conditioners, swimming pools, and hot tubs. For prevention, avoid any place dirty.
