Malaria symptoms include the following:

  • Fever
  • Cycles of sweating and chills
  • Malaise
  • Diarrhoea
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Muscle aches

These symptoms may not present themselves for many weeks after returning from a high-risk area. Patients are therefore advised to be vigilant for any symptoms for up to one year after returning but especially within the first 3 months of travel.

Malaria does not always present with symptoms which may result in a delay in diagnosis of the condition. It is important to seek prompt medical attention if these symptoms do present following travel to a malaria risk zone as this condition can be associated with complications if untreated. Some complications associated with malaria include:

  • Anaemia
  • Kidney or Liver Failure
  • Celebral Malaria (where the brain gets affected)
  • Shock
