Allergies and skin diseases in Travelers- Vaccinations

Track: 11 Allergies and skin diseases in Travelers- Vaccinations

Skin problems are among the most frequent medical problems in returned travellers. The largest case series of dermatologic problems in returned travellers from the Geo Sentinel Surveillance Network showed that cutaneous larva migrans, insect bites, and bacterial infections were the most frequent skin problems in ill travellers who sought medical care, making up 30% of the 4,742 diagnoses In another review of 165 travellers who returned to France with skin problems, cellulitis, scabies, and pyoderma led the list of skin conditions. These data are biased in that they do not include skin problems that were diagnosed and, in many cases, easily managed during travel or that were self-limited.

Skin problems generally fall into either of the following categories: 1) those associated with fever, usually a rash or secondary bacterial infection (cellulitis, lymphangitis, bacteremia, toxin-mediated) and 2) those not associated with fever. Most skin problems are minor and are not accompanied by fever.

Tropical diseasesare diseases that are prevalen tropical and subtropical regions. The diseases are less prevalent in temperate climates, due in part to the occurrence of a cold season, which controls the insect population by forcing hibernation.[1] Insects such as mosquitoes and flies are by far the most common disease carrier, orvector. These insects may carry a parasite, bacterium or virus that is infectious to humans and animals. Most often disease is transmitted by an insect "bite", which causes transmission of the infectious agent through subcutaneous blood exchange. Vaccines are not available for most of the diseases listed here, and many do not have cures.
