Must Know Ways to Mend Malaria Fever

Malaria is another mosquito transmitted disease that’s common during and after the monsoon, when mosquitoes have had a chance to breed in stagnant water. The more severe falciparum strain is the most active after the monsoon.

Learn to handle mosquito bite itchiness with the following–

  • Wash the area well with water and soap.
  • Cold compress helps many people, so it’s worth a try.
  • Calamine lotion works and so does calendula ointment, which is an excellent repellent and counter irritant.
  • Rub dry soap over the mosquito bite. It reduces the itchy feeling and the swelling.
  • You can also use a banana peel which is to be used inside out. This provides relief from the bites.
  • Apply ice over the mosquito bite, some people swear by a small blob of toothpaste on the sting.

Preventative measures:

Take an antimalarial drug such as mefloquine, atovaquone/Proguanil, or doxycycline. Also take measures to prevent against mosquito bites
