What Are The Causes Of Malaria Disease Recurrence?
Excuse me, I’ve had vivax malaria and have recovered with the drug primaquine u0026amp; dihydroartemisinin piperaquine. But I was told that it could relapse. Question: r n1. What is the medicine to kill the malaria parasites in the liver when it is dormant so that it doesn’t relapse? R n2. What are the triggers for malaria relapse? Such as food or lifestyle … r n3. When can I return blood donation if I want blood donation? R n4. Someone once tried giving neurobion to those with malaria. He said it worked. Is that true? R nSorry, many questions, thank you.
Thank you Ihsan Muhammad for his question on the HealthReplies.com forum, malaria is a disease caused by a parasite called plasmodium, where this parasite is generally transmitted by the bite of a female Anopheles mosquito. There are several types of parasites that cause malaria, including P. falciparum, P. vivax, P. ovale, P. malariae, etc. Where P. vivax and P. ovale are malaria-causing parasites that can become dormant. This parasite which has the ability to become dormant if not handled properly can have the potential to cause recurrence at a later date. It should be noted, however, that proper handling can usually eradicate the parasite completely (unless the parasite is resistant to drugs). Where the treatment for this dormant case has actually been given during the initial malaria treatment such as by using the drug primaquine.
In cases where the malaria parasite is not fully eradicated, the recurrence condition generally occurs because the parasite returns to activity from its dormant period, usually this takes months with an average of about 6 months from the last period of therapy, besides that the immune system factor is also a factor. one of the factors that influence the recurrence of this infection. Regarding blood donation, malaria patients who have received therapy generally can only donate their blood again 3 years after being given therapy, besides that patients must also remain malaria free for the past 3 years. For neurobion, this drug is a vitamin B supplementation drug. Therefore, the use of these drugs in cases of malaria aims as an adjunct therapy and not as a therapy that can eradicate parasites which are the basic cause of malaria.
