Q.

baby and malaria area

I would like to know if there is medication to give a 15month old baby when visiting a malaria area and if it is a good idea at all to take the chance of taking a baby into such an area?

No medicines are safe to give such a young baby. I would recommend that you do not take your baby to a malaria area.
