malaria, fatigue, fever blister


i had malaria this time last year. i just came back from Uganda and took Malanil while there and 7 days after. i had chronic cramps and diarhhea while there and took antibiotics prescribed by a local doctor. since returning on the 18th i have had continuous diarrhea but thought it might be the malanil, since finishing the malanil i still have it aswell as chronic fatigue and got a fever blister. i feel alright other than that, could i possibly have malaria again?

Dear Gravel
The only way you’ll know is by going for a blood test. Also ask your doctor to send away a stool sample as you may have picked up travelers diarrhea or a parasite.
