Malaria is a disease caused by a parasite most commonly transmitted by mosquitoes in tropical regions of the world. Symptoms present as fever, headaches, fatigue, and flu-like illness. Preventative medications are recommended when traveling to high-risk malaria destinations. Anti-malarial pills kill parasites during the development stage and typically should begin being taken before you enter the risk area. Runway physicians typically prescribe atovaquone:proguanil (the generic equivalent of Malarone) or doxycycline. Use as directed.

Frequently Asked Questions
Icon


Malaria is a tropical parasite disease that is primarily spread through mosquitoes. It can be life threatening. Malaria is not common in the United States, but it can be spread through immigration and travel from other countries where malaria is prevalent. Malaria is most common in warm, tropical climates such as Africa, South and Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Central and South America, and Oceania.

Malaria is primarily spread when an infected mosquito bites a non-infected person. The malaria parasites travel through the bloodstream and travel to the liver. After the parasites mature, they multiply in red blood cells, destroying them.

Malaria is not contagious person to person.

Symptoms are delayed, first occurring 7-30 days after infection and generally last 6-10 hours and cycle every 2 to 3 days. Malaria symptoms include shivering, fever, headache, vomiting, sweating, seizures, and fatigue. When left untreated, malaria can become severe and cause death.
