Our expert says:
It is one of those bad myths doing the rounds. It is always better to take the tablets as your risk of serious malaria (brain malaria and black water fever) is much reduced when taking preventative medication. All doctors should be at high alert in any patient with fever that visited a malaria area, and our tests these days are so sensitive that we pick it up easily. Please rather take your tablets!
