Well come to HCM
Thank for asking and appreciate your concern, symptoms of diarrhea is common in malaria and that does not needs any treatment and neither it is to be worried, although passing of stool three to four times in day is normal one if not associated with fever, abdomen pain, nausea vomiting.
I would advise you to just be patience no need to take any treatment, the thing is happening due to malarial induce gastritis and it is the self limiting condition, at the most probiotic like lactobacillus can be tried.
hope this information helps.
