Question: What is the difference between diarrhea and traveler's diarrhea? Is there a fundamental difference between diarrhea and traveler's diarrhea?

Answer: Same ****, different cause - LOL No seriously, diarrhea is diarrhea, it's the cause that makes them "different". Travellers is usually just called that b/c the diarrhea is from ingesting bacteria from food/drink that hasn't been treated the way we do here in USA (or treated at all for that matter) and your gut reacts. It can be pretty devastating and can ruin a good vacation!! Be wary of what you eat in a foreign country, esp. tropical places
