SYMPTOMS OF MALARIA 

It is important to be aware of the early signs of Malaria so that you can immediately seek medical help if you begin to experience them. If recognised and treated quickly enough, full recoveries can be made.  

Symptoms include:  

  •     High temperatures 
  •     Headaches 
  •     Vomiting 
  •     Muscle pains 
  •     Diarrhoea 
  •     Shivering and feeling feverish 

If you have been bitten by an infected mosquito, these symptoms generally begin to show around a week to 18 days later. Typically, the symptoms appear in a 2-day cycle, fluctuating between feeling cold and shivering and then severely fatigued.

You must remember which anti-malaria tablet you are taking in case you do contract the disease. You can’t be treated with the same antibiotic you are using preventatively, as it will not be effective in curing the disease.
