What's the worst "holiday illness" you've ever had - eg sun poisoning, prickly heat, travelers' tummy etc?

Did it spoil your holiday or did you get to enjoy some of it?

I've just had colds on vacation. Nothing worse than developing an annoying cough and runny/stuffy nose, thank goodness.

I don't think I've ever had anything while on vacation.

That's really lucky. I have to say I've never had travelers' belly but I have had sun poisoning which made me feel very sick.

I'm pretty sure I had pneumonia when I was in Greece. I don't think I'd been that sick since I had mono. It was awful but I didn't want to go to the doctor. Stupid me. About a week after I left Greece and was feeling a bit better I started coughing up neon green stuff (TMI, I know!)

I had horrid sun poisoning when I was in my early 20's, when I went to Cape Cod. Thankfully, it was at the very end of the trip. BUT, it made for an AWFUL car ride home (which was 5 hours) because I was throwing up the whole way home. That was one of the worst experiences I've ever had, I was so so so ill.

I wasn't stupid, either. I wore sunscreen.. it wasn't like I spent all day in the sun without it, I even re-applied when I was supposed to. I guess it was just too long in the sun (it was maybe 8 hours).. I have sensitive skin. I will never, EVER spend more than 5 hours on a beach again.

Now that I think about it, back when I was in 8th grade and on vacation with my biological father, his wife and her son, I got sunburned REALLY bad. It was painful to shower, and even to wear a shirt. I spent a lot of time in the hotel room, which was fine since I didn't get along with my ex-stepmom.

Oh Erika, that sounds horrible. I have to be careful how much time I spend in the sun too, my skin is SO pale. I had mine in the middle of the holiday so at least I could lie in bed in the apartment feeling sorry for myself and getting better. I was better by the time I flew home.
