I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

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?
