I got the quite common of having diarrhea, it did not occour to me many times in Vietnam, but this time my stay in Bac Lieu wasn't as pleasant as before.
So it happened to me that I had to stay close to the restroom. The problem is, how to get medicine? Luckily some participants of the training offered their help and went to the pharmacy. I asked my coworkers to buy some anti-dehydration powder. What the pharmacy gave them was:
Antibiotics, used for treating a specific amoebia
Tablets for treating blatter infection
and finally: Hydrite, the stuff I needed.
Shows, that trusting a pharmacist might be risky in Vietnam. and the best way to treat diarrhea is still:
Use electrolytes like Hydrite
if its a common infection it should be over in 2-3 days. If not see a doctor.
