By taking what medicine can I get rid of malaria permanently ?

I am getting malaria frequently. In past I have got malaria falciperum positive with Rapid malaria antigen. Since I am not getting permanent relief I want to get it tested again. I wanna know that if I have both vivax and falciperum (or any other type) which test can tell that? Will the above mentioned test work for finding both? Which is the best test to find everything about malaria infection?

Dear,thanks for query.Please complete course of antimalarial drugs as prescribed by your doctor.In some cases like vivax malaria you need to take radical treatment to prevent recurrence after completion of drugs.Normally peripheral blood smear is able to diagnose any kind of malaria.Some special test like thick slide,card test ,Q.B.C. are sometimes advised.please get in touch with your doctor.bye.
