Malaria is a serious tropical disease spread by mosquitoes. If not diagnosed and treated quickly, it can be fatal.
If you’re travelling to the tropics, make sure you are aware of the symptoms of malaria and seek up-to-date malaria advice before you go. At Fleet Street Travel Clinic, we provide personalised consultations to make your trip as healthy as possible.
The most common malaria symptoms are:
Not all of these symptoms may be present, and symptoms may be delayed (in some cases for up to a year) after your return home – obscuring the link to your travels. Always seek prompt medical advice if you are unwell, and tell carers that you have been abroad – and possibly exposed to malaria.
Malaria is easily misdiagnosed as flu – especially at times of year when flu-like symptoms are common. Fever, even weeks after returning from the tropics, should always be treated as an emergency. Call us on 020 7353 5678 and we can advise you.
First of all find out if you are travelling to a country that has a risk of malaria- visit our country vaccination guide.
When visiting an area with significant risk of malaria, anti-malarial medication may be required. The type of medication given will depend on where you are travelling to, your personal preferences, and your medical history. We will help you find the anti-malarial medication that suits your circumstances and requirements.
We always discuss the risks and benefits in detail with every traveller. For individuals who are travelling to high risk areas with limited access to health care, we can supply stand-by emergency treatment. This is also increasing in popularity among travellers from German-speaking parts of Europe, travelling to areas of low risk for malaria, as an alternative to taking preventive medication.
Malaria is spread by mosquitoes, so a cornerstone of reducing the risk is to take careful precautions against being bitten in the first place:
