Malaria is rare in the United States. But it
is widespread in other parts of the world. Find out about the risk for malaria
before you travel internationally. The most accurate information about malaria
risk and medicine resistance in specific countries is from the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
It is possible that the main title of the report Measles is not the name you expected. Please check the synonyms listing to find the alternate name(s) and disorder subdivision(s) covered by this report.
If you have been in an area where malaria occurs, were
exposed to mosquitoes, and develop flu-like symptoms, but tests do not show the
malaria parasite in your blood, the tests should be repeated 3 or 4 times to
confirm that you do not have a malaria infection. During treatment,
tests are repeated to follow the course of the infection and to check whether
the number of parasites is decreasing.
Your age and health
condition are important factors in selecting a medicine to prevent or treat
children, people who are very old, people who have
other health problems, and those who did not take medicine to prevent
malaria infection require special consideration.
