After your travels
If you develop any malaria-like symptoms within a year of returning home from a malarial area, seek immediate medical advice. Inform the healthcare professional when and where you have travelled so that they can make an accurate diagnosis which will enable you to receive the right treatment if needed.
- If you were recommended to take malaria pills continue to take them and complete the course as instructed.
- Re-familiarise yourself with the symptoms of malaria and keep an eye out for them, just in case.
