Thank you for visiting health24.com.

You can take anti-Malaria medication but these do have side effects. I suggest that you use creams/ointments, as well as wearing long trousers, especially at night, sleep under a mosquito net etc., to prevent being stung by the carriers of malaria.

Kind regards
