If you’re traveling to Dallas, TX, to attend a convention at Kay Bailey Hutchison, Dallas Convention Center or Dallas Expo Center, do you know what you would do if you were to get sick? Getting off the plane at Dallas Love Field, DFW International Airport or Dallas Executive Airport, having breathed dry, recycled air for hours along with a hundred other people, with germs all around, it’s not uncommon to get an “airplane cold” or worse.
That “airplane cold,” coupled with a radical change in diet and sleep habits, can leave you with a fever, bronchial infection, ear infection, sinus infection, stomach flu or gastrointestinal distress. A urinary tract infection or yeast infection can even crop up from the stresses of traveling. Getting sick while traveling can be the most miserable experience.
