Traveling Overseas, Antibiotics

My doctor was talking about her family trip to Barcelona, Spain.  She described the adventures she and her family had on a cruise.  However, on the trip, her son became terribly sick and was getting worse.  It was extremely tedious searching and finding the nearest hospital and getting antibiotics for her youngest child. 

To save yourself the hassle next time you travel, be prepared and ask your pediatrician for a children's antibiotic to take with you in case your son or daughter becomes sick.  It's a dry form that you can add water to when needed.  Pediatricians are absolutely willing to help you get prepared.
