When to Seek Medical Care
People who have a recent history of travel to a country in which malaria exists and who develop a high fever or other symptoms that may be malaria should call their doctor or go to a hospital's emergency department. Additional risk factors in travelers to malarious areas include not taking preventive medications or not using mosquito precautions. However, neither medications nor mosquito precautions are perfect and travelers should not overlook symptoms of malaria if they occur.
