When you understand that germs don't cause disease, then there is nothing to fear. No matter where you are in the world.
Pasteur said it at the end of his life (after he finally got smart - or honest): It's not the Germ but the terrain.
That is fact, because when we take throat culture we find out that we have diphtheria, hib, and many other germs living in our thraot or somewhere else in our body and we don't get sick. They pose no problem.
A child (or any person) gets sick when he has extremely poor nutrition, repeated lack of sleep, continuous stress through fear or war, total lack of unconditional love.
If a child has a faily balanced life, he won't get sick, no matter what grounds he walks on or who he comes in contact with.
Polio is a very benign virus. 95% of people who have it notice absolutely nothing. It is no more than a flu.
When we see pictures of children in the iron lung or whatever, that was a chemical poisoning and not due to a polio virus. Although the symptomes are very similar, it was not the polio from the virus.
Polio via virus became a problem only after we vaccinated the virus into the blood. If your child is not vaccinated, he will not get polio. No matter where he is. There are a lot of prerequesites to polio, some I have mentioned above.
In Central America where they have polio, I would bet it is either from the vaccine or DDT poisoning which can be used on the fields there.
When you go there, peel all fruits and vegetables, and drink only "clean" water, that's all I would do. And then not worry!
You mentioned Neosporin around the nostrils and Airborne.
Why do you want to create a super germ? Germs are all over, you will not be able to get rid of them. And when we use such things as you mentioned, we create super germs that we can not treat with anything.
Why not rely on the child's health? Let his immune system take care of him.
Scientists and drug manufacturers don't have a good record of keeping children healthy. Why take their advice?
As soon as you learn that germs are not detramental to our health but realize that we actually can not live without them, you will be much more relaxed about them.
There is nothing that will make you or your child sick quicker, than paranoia.
Travel wherever! Take some precautions when eating fruit and vegetables and with your drinking water, other than that, enjoy your trip.
