Have you fallen victim to Cyclospora on a Mexican getaway?

If youve travelled to Mexico and suffered from severe diarrhoea, then you may have contracted Cyclospora during your stay.

Cyclospora is an infection which is caused by the parasite Cyclospora Cayetanensis, and it is contracted by the ingestion of contaminated water or food, particularly raw fruit and vegetables.

Other symptoms you may have to endure include nausea, stomach cramps & fatigue, and if you feel as though you are suffering from Cyclospora we advise that you seek medical attention at your nearest convenience.
