Rehydrate with Pedialyte®

Pedialyte® can help with causes of dehydration like travel sickness

Travel sickness and dehydration treatments

Spring break, a family vacay, or that business trip… Travel brings many opportunities for dehydration. Unfamiliar foods can leave you or your little one stuck in the bathroom with traveler’s diarrhea; the dry air in planes may leave everyone dry-mouthed; too much sunshine can turn all of you into crankypants; and margaritas by the pool may leave you with a headache. But there’s something everyone can do to feel better fast — rehydrate with Pedialyte®.

How travel can lead to dehydration

Pedialyte® can help with causes of dehydration like stomach flu

Stomach bugs and food poisoning

Traveling to exotic or new locales means eating exotic or new foods, which may not be prepared the way your or your little one’s stomach is used to. And trips on a cruise ship can mean close quarters, which makes it easier for stomach bugs to spread. Any type of stomach upset can lead to dehydration if traveler's diarrhea and vomiting cause the body to lose fluids and electrolytes.

Pedialyte® can help with causes of dehydration like heat and sweating


Running around on the beach, taking long hikes, or spending an afternoon rock climbing out in the sun… All of these warm-weather activities can leave you or your kid drenched with sweat. And too much perspiration can lead to dehydration.

Pedialyte® can help with causes of dehydration like excessive sweating

Lack of humidity in planes and trains

Fatigue, headaches, dry mouth, and dry skin are just some of the dehydration symptoms that can come from being subjected to the lower humidity in a plane or a train for long periods of time.

Try Pedialyte® powder sachets for travel sickness and symptoms of dehydration

No one wants to have their or their family’s trip ruined as a result of feeling lousy due to dehydration from travel sickness, so always be prepared with the medical-grade rehydration with Pedialyte® to help fight the effects of dehydration.

Pedialyte® powder sachets, with their compact, on-the-go format, are perfect for you or your little one’s carry-on! They can get past security and are easy to fit into small spaces like a purse, wallet, or pocket. To rehydrate, just add the powder to water (make sure to use bottled water if you’re traveling abroad). The Government of Canada1 recommends commercial oral rehydration solutions like Pedialyte® as the first treatment for traveler’s diarrhea and suggests purchasing it prior to departure as part of a travel first-aid kit.

For over 50 years, Pedialyte® has helped people hydrate with the optimal balance of sugar and electrolytes for fast rehydration. Pedialyte® is the #1 brand recommended by GPs and pediatricians.
