Malaria is a life-threatening disease. It’s typically transmitted through the bite of an infected Anopheles mosquito. Infected mosquitoes carry the Plasmodium parasite. When this mosquito bites you, the parasite is released into your bloodstream.
Patients with malaria typically become symptomatic a few weeks after infection, though the symptomatology and incubation period may vary, depending on host factors and the causative species. Clinical symptoms include the following: Headache (noted in virtually all patients with malaria) Cough.
Oral paracetamol (acetaminophen) is safe and effective for fever and should be used in doses of 10 mg/kg. This dose can be repeated 3-6 times a day, as required. If the child has hyperpyrexia, tepid sponging can rapidly bring the temperature down.
Many children with malaria develop anemia. Because the onset is gradual, children withstand a low level of hemoglobin quite well and blood transfusions are rarely needed
