Have you been stung by one of the scorpion fish family in the Maldives ?, if so what treatment if any was available at your resort.?
The reason I ask is I've had a few experiences with nasty's of the deep including the above, but I was fortunate to receive treatment each time from hospitals not too far away.
What medication would you recommend taking with you for stomach upsets etc. Many years ago my wife and I were suffering from severe diarrhoea on one of the islands, Imodium was useless and then a fellow traveller gave us a couple of tiny little pills called Lomotil, They were very effective and we were back on our feet in no time. Last year I asked my doctor if Lomotil was available and he said it was unknown in the UK. I did find it on line but I'm not sure purchasing it in this way is a good idea as I've read it is or was a controlled drug supplied in the US.
Anyway apart from Lomotil can anyone recommend another effective remedy?
