Why plasmodium vivax is not causing a severe type of malarial infection? And why it's called benign tertian malaria.
The infection with plasmodium vivax is a milder infection by its nature and as it is not fatal it called benign tertiary malaria.

Hi, I am always feeling tired and weak even after treating malaria. Please what could be the problem?
It is because of allopathic medicine. It may kill the malarial parasite but it does not help to recover from the damage of it. And it also has some side effects. You can consult me at Lybrate for homoeopathic treatment. Till then take .avena sativa q 10 drops thrice.

मलेरिया का उपचार - Maleria Ka Upchar!
मलेरिया प्रोटोजोआ पैरासाइट द्वारा फैलने वाली एक संक्रामक बीमारी है. मलेरिया के पैरासाइट का वाहक का नाम मादा एनोफि लेज मच्छर है. इसके काटने पर मलेरिया के पैरासाइट रेड ब्लड सेल्स में प्रवेश करके बढ़ने लगते हैं. इससे एनीमिया के लक्षण अनुभव होने लगता हैं, जिसमे चक्कर आना और सांस फूलना इत्यादि शामिल है. इसके अलावा, बुखार, जुखाम, उबकाई, और सर्दी आदि जैसे लक्षण भी अनुभव हो सकते हैं. गंभीर स्थिति में रोगी बेहोश भी हो सकता है. मलेरिया सबसे सामान्य संक्रामक रोगों में से एक है और एक गंभीर जन समस्या है. मलेरिया में बुखार से पीड़ित होने पर मरीज को बहुत ठंड लगती है. इस बुखार में मरीज के शरीर का ताममान 101 से 105 डिग्री फॉरेनहाइट तक बना रहता है. मेडिकल साइंस में प्रगति के बावजूद अभी तक हम मलेरिया को जड़ से खत् म करने में हम कामयाब नहीं हो पाये हैं. ऐसे में मलेरिया का इलाज कुछ घरेलू नुस्खों से किया जा सकता है. आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से हम मलेरिया के उपचार के बारे में जानें ताकि इस विषय में जागरूक हो सकें.

1.गिलोय-
गिलोय एक आयुर्वेदिक बेल है, जो मलेरिया होने पर बुखार को कम करने में सहायक होता हैं. गिलोय के काढ़े या रस में शहद मिलाकर 40 से 70 मिलीलीटर की मात्रा में रोजाना सेवन करने से मलेरिया में बहुत लाभकारी होता है. बुखार से राहत पाने के लिए लगभग 40 ग्राम गिलोय को क्रश कर मिट्टी के बर्तन में पानी मिलाकर रात भर के लिए ढक कर छोड़ दें. सुबह इसे मसल कर छानकर रोगी को अस्सी ग्राम मात्रा दिन में तीन बार पीने से बुखार दूर हो जाता है.

2.नीम-
नीम का पेड़ एंटी-मलेरिया-रोधी के रूप में लोकप्रिय है. यह एंटी वायरस पेड़ है. मलेरिया सामान्यत: मच्छरों के काटने से होता है. इसके मुख्य लक्षणों में सर्दी, कंपकपाहट, तेज बुखार, बेहोशी, बुखार उतरने पर पसीना छूटना, आदि शामिल हैं. मलेरिया के लक्षणों से राहत पाने के लिए नीम के तने की छाल का काढ़ा दिन में तीन बार पिलाने से लाभ होता है. इससे बुखार में आराम मिलता है. नीम के थोड़े से हरे पत्ते और चार काली मिर्च एक साथ पीस लें. इसके बाद इसे थोड़े से पानी में मिलाकर उबाल लें. इस पानी को छानकर पीने से लाभ होता है. इसके अलावा नीम तेल में नारियल या सरसों का तेल मिलाकर शरीर पर मालिश करने से भी मच्छरों के कारण उत्पन्न मलेरिया का बुखार उतर जाता है.

3.तुलसी-
भारत में तुलसी को पूजनीय भी माना जाता है. यह कई बीमारियों में उपयोग किया जाता है. अपने घर में तुलसी का पौधा जरूर लगाएं. मलेरिया के उपचार के लिए 10 ग्राम तुलसी के पत्ते और 7-8 मिर्च को पानी में पीसकर सुबह और शा म लेने से बुखार ठीक हो जाता है. इसमें आप शहद भी मिला सकते हैं. अनेक गुणों के साथ ही तुलसी मच्छरों को भगाने में भी मददगार साबित होती है.

4.अदरक-
अदरक का सेवन भोजन का स्वाद बढ़ाने के साथ-साथ मलेरिया के इलाज के लिए भी काफी लाभदायक होता है. थोड़ी सी अदरक लेकर उसमें 2-3 चम् मच किशमिश डालकर पानी के साथ उबालें. जब तक पानी आधा नहीं रह जाता इसे उबालते रहें. थोड़ा ठंडा होने पर इसे दिन में दो बार लें. इससे मलेरिया का बुखार कम करने में बहुत मदद मिलती है. इसके अलावा, मलेरिया होने पर हरसिंगार के पत्ते का सेवन अदरक के रस के साथ शक्कर मिलाकर किया जाये तो मलेरिया में लाभ होता है.

5.अमरुद-
अमरुद का सेवन मलेरिया में लाभप्रद होता है. यदि किसी को मलेरिया हो जाए तो उसे रोज दिन में तीन बार उसे अमरूद अवश्य खिलाएं. बहुत प्रभावी रहेगा. अमरूद के मुकाबले इसके छिलके में विटामिन सी बहुत अधिक होता है. इसलिए अमरूद को छिलका हटाकर कभी न खाएं.

ये भी करें-
मलेरिया के इलाज के लिए ताजा फल और ताजा के फलों का जूस देना बहुत फायदेमंद रहता है. साथ ही तरल पदार्थों को कुछ-कुछ समय के अंतराल में लेते रहना चाहिए. खासकर नींबू पानी. इसके अलावा, इसके इलाज में हल्का व्यायाम और टहलना भी अच्छा रहता है. लेकिन, याद रखें ये सब कुदरती उपाय चिकित् सीय परामर्श का विकल् प नहीं हैं. आपको चाहिये कि जरूरी दवाओं का सेवन अवश् य करते रहें.

I am suffering from malaria fever for last 10 days, I completed the doctor prescribed course, is it safe to have a sex with my partner?

I am suffering from malaria fever for last 10 days, I completed the doctor prescribed course, is it safe to have a se...
Well, malaria is a disease not transmitted by body fluids. You need a vector in form of mosquitoes to transmit it. So you can have sex with your partner based on the history you have provided. And as far as malaria is concerned, I think one medicine in your course is of 14 days (primaquine). So you should take it for 4 more days to eliminate the sleeping malaria cells in your body.

Malaria - Are Aware Of The Common Types?

Malaria - Are Aware Of The Common Types?
Mosquitoes might be tiny creatures, but are responsible for some of the most dreadful diseases, one of them is malaria. Malaria is caused by a parasite that is transmitted through mosquito bites directly or from mother to unborn baby and through blood transfusions. Very widely spread in the Asian and African continents, people travelling here are very cautious of this disease. In areas that are notorious for mosquito infestations, the local people also take preventive measures to ensure mosquito breeding is prevented or at least minimised.

Spread of the disease: When a mosquito bites an infected person, it picks up the parasite from the person and when it next bites another person, the infection is also transmitted. From there, the parasite travels to the liver and into the bloodstream before reaching another individual. While all people are prone to getting the infection, elderly people, children, pregnant women, and immunocompromised people are at greater risk. Also, new travellers are at greater risk than local people, who are to some extent immune to mosquito bites.

Symptoms: The disease is characterised by moderate to severe shaking chills which are more common in the evening, high fever, profuse sweating, headache, vomiting, and diarrhoea. Quite often, there is about a 4-week gap between the time of the mosquito bite and the onset of symptoms. However, in many people, the disease could lie dormant and symptoms manifest when the immunity is severely lowered.
With the gradual progression of the disease, more severe symptoms could evolve as below, and that is when malaria becomes life-threatening.

Cerebral malaria: Once the parasites enter the bloodstream, they can block the minor blood vessels in the brain leading to cerebral oedema and even brain damage. It could eventually result in coma.
Anaemia: There is large-scale destruction of red blood cells, leading to severe anaemia and weakness and fatigue
Breathing problems: Similarly, accumulation of fluid in the lung spaces can lead to pulmonary oedema which causes difficulty breathing and lung failure.
Organ failure: Blood flow blockage to other vital organs like kidneys, liver, and spleen are also possible. The spleen may rupture leading to severe haemorrhage.
Low blood sugar: The malarial parasite per se and the most commonly used medicine (quinine) are both known to cause low blood sugar levels. This can result in coma and even death.
Once the diagnosis is confirmed, treatment usually consists of chloroquine, Mefloquine, quinine sulfate, or hydroxychloroquine. There are various drug-resistant forms of malaria, and they may require combination therapy.
Prevention assumes greater significance with travellers going for vaccines prior to visiting these areas. Even the local people should find ways to avoid breeding of mosquitoes, use mosquito repellents and nets to avoid the infection.
