Many conditions that are not frequently seen in a particular country may present as a result of increased international travel. <br>Appropriate investigations and consultation with experts may be needed in order to make the correct diagnosis and provide correct management. <br>Climate-related disorders include both heat- and cold-related disorders. <br>Allergic disorders are commonly seen, owing to their sudden onset and distressing nature. Infectious disorders represent one of the biggest challenges, particularly as HIV may change the typical nature of these conditions. <br>Exotic conditions such as unusual viral exanthems, deep fungal infections, atypical rickettsial diseases and Lyme disease must be considered depending on the country of origin. <br>Infestations with worms or protozoa are uncommon and are related to the country of origin. <br>Arthropod bites may result in many different skin manifestations.
