Malaria is a serious, sometimes fatal disease that is spread by mosquitoes that have been infected by a parasite. The disease is spread when mosquitoes feed on humans. Malaria breeds mostly in warmer climates, where there is an abundance of humidity and rain.
What is the first Sign of Malaria?
Some people who have malaria experience cycles of malaria “attacks.” An attack usually starts with shivering and chills, followed by a high fever, followed by sweating and a return to normal temperature. Malaria signs and symptoms typically begin within a few weeks after being bitten by an infected mosquito.
Why is Malaria Harmful
Malaria can cause high fever, chills, and flu-like symptoms that can be life-threatening when not treated quickly.
Can Malaria go away on its own?
With proper treatment, symptoms of malaria usually go away quickly, with a cure within two weeks. Without proper treatment, malaria episodes (fever, chills, sweating) can return periodically over a period of years. After repeated exposure, patients will become partially immune and develop milder disease.
What are the home remedies for malaria?
Take fresh lemon juice with water whenever you feel feverish. Cinnamon powder can be used as a beneficial medicine in lowering the temperature in malaria. Mix one teaspoon of cinnamon powder with a pinch of pepper powder and honey in a glass of water and drink it.
How long does it take to recover from Malaria?
About two weeks
Treatment of malaria depends on the number of different factors that include disease severity, the particular species of Plasmodium infecting the patient and the potential for drug resistance of the various species and strains of Plasmodium. In general, it takes about two weeks of treatment to be cured of malaria.
