Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what exactly are the symptoms of malaria that you are experiencing? Has it ever been seen by a doctor and diagnosed with malaria? What tests have you been through to find out what kind of illness you are suffering from?
Malaria is a disease caused by a parasite called Plasmodium. This parasite can be transmitted to humans after being bitten by mosquitoes that contain parasites in the body, especially female Anopheles mosquitoes. After the parasite enters the human body, the parasite will flow to the liver, multiply there and damage red blood cells. Furthermore, various complaints can arise, such as fever, chills, headache, weakness, aching rheumatic pain, anemia, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, bowel movements, diarrhea, excessive sweating, and so on.
People who have suffered from malaria, even though they have been treated until healed, it is not impossible to get back to the same disease, considering that there are more than 1 type of parasite that can cause it. However, it should also be understood, that sometimes, symptoms resembling malaria can also occur due to other triggers, for example leptospirosis, influenza, common cold, dengue fever, chikungunya, Singapore flu, measles, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, leukemia, scarlatina fever, and so on. Therefore, if it has never been seen by a doctor, it is not advisable to arbitrarily determine the diagnosis, especially taking any medication (except over-the-counter drugs).
Without checking you directly, it is certainly not our authority to give you the right handling, and determine whether the treatment you have been through is right or not. However, if it is true that you are experiencing malaria, of course this condition must be treated with anti-parasitic drugs in order to eradicate the parasites that cause the infection in the body, so it is not enough just to administer paracetamol and natural remedies as you mentioned ...
The good, check yourself to the doctor or internist in order to be given the right treatment. Meanwhile, to make yourself more immune to diseases, including malaria or those that have symptoms similar to malaria, you should:
Discipline to live a healthy lifestyle, including with regular sleep at least 6 hours a day, exercise at least 30 minutes every day, eat a variety of foods that are of balanced nutritional value, do not smoke Avoid traveling to malaria endemic areas (if inevitable, go to the doctor first to be given prophylactic treatment of malaria) Do not take any medication, except if prescribed by a doctor. Hope it helps.
