How to handle malaria if you are affected

As per Dr Deswal, here are some tips on what to do when you’re affected by malaria:

* Consume a healthy and nutritious diet, which is rich in proteins and carbohydrates. Eat foods for quicker recovery.
* Avoid alcohol
* Stop smoking
* Don’t indulge in heavy or strenuous exercises
* Avoid further mosquito bites
* Wait for the fever to come down

Make sure you eat well for faster recovery. 


There are various treatment options available when it comes to malaria, but it largely depends on three different factors. These are:

1. Type of parasite that may have affected you.
2. Severity of the disease
3. Special propositions like HIV, diabetes, pregnancy etc.

A person diagnosed with malaria can recover within 7-10 days upon receiving proper treatment. However, severe cases may take a longer time for recovery.
