Hi welcome to the health care magic

You have been prescribed artemether I think as per history

Antibody card test can remain positive long after treatment as well

You can investigate with peripheral thick smear examination to check for parasitemia

Your clinical improvement also has to be seen

Take care

Hope your concern solved
