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.

I have had recent blood samples and urine and stool cultures done. I had typhoid which took months to clear whilst I am in India. I have recently been passing what I know to be part of the superficial intestine (I had a dog who died from parvovirus and he passed the same thing just before his death and which I showed to his vet!) I recently had some diarheoa but not severe. Now, however, just 5 days after the results came back normal, I have a really severe sore throat, chest, back, neck and shoulders. My arms are sore to move and to touch, and covered in mosquito bites. I have severe pain in between my shoulder blades for which I am taking continuous pain killers. My fever is 102 and up to 104, for the past 2 days. I feel like I have severe flu and cannot do anything, even moving my fingers is causing pain!!! Can I have malaria even if my tests came back showing nothing abnormal? My chest hurts to cough, so does my back.

Hi Doctor, i have a pain in my right side of my abdomen, exactly on the place where liver is located. it started when i was in hospital treating for malaria, pneumonia and typhoid fever. the examination result for these diseases in different hospitals was different. but i took all the prescribed drugs. When I check i check my liver except there was enlargement of liver and spleen, they called Hepatosplenomegaly they told me that the size and function of the liver is fine. but still the pain after a year and half is continuing. sometimes it is low and other time very strong which i feel it very well when i asleep by that side. plus i have disc prostitution case which is not treated. So, my question is do you think that the problem is liver case or associated with the disc problem?

Our family is all taking Malarone as we went to an island with the potential for malaria. We have all come down with various rashes. One on the back of the thigh (painful and two red stripes), the others behind the knees and in the armpits. This has never happened to us before. Could this be from the medication, sun, or something like ringworm or scabies?
