Bilharzia

Hi,

I was swimming in malawi where bilharzia is rife, and left there about 9 weeks ago. I have no discernible symptoms at the moment, but wish to be prudent. I return to the UK in another 10 weeks. Is it ok to wait until i return to UK to have a Bilharzia test?

thanks,
Tim.

If you suspect that you might be infected with bilharzia, you should consult a doctor as soon as possible to exclude the possibility. Do not wait 10 weeks.
