Warm, tropical locations can make it easier for bacteria, parasites, and viruses to grow. These places may present a greater than normal risk for infections that are not common in other areas of the world.
Tropical infectious diseases include:
- Dengue fever
- Yellow fever
- Ebola virus
- Lassa virus
When traveling to tropical places, you should take precautions to prevent these conditions. An infectious disease physician can help.
