Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Malaria is spreading throughout my neighborhood, and I am worried if I will contract it too. Also, I have had some mosquito bites, but there are no symptoms. So, is there any vaccine to prevent it? How can I protect myself from it? What step should I take? Kindly help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand your concern. However, I would suggest you take the tablet Chloroquine 200 mg once weekly for prevention, and also, use mosquito repellents and net.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
