My wife is suffering from fever, she has taken crocin and sinarest. Fever is coming every day on evening from last 2 days, our family doctor is saying it's symptoms of malaria, also he tested by malaria kit but results is negative, but still he is asking for injection (Rapither injection). Is it ok sir. Wife is 7 months pregnant. Kindly suggest.

It is difficult to say till I know what tests have been done so far and what are your wife's symptoms other than fever. However if malaria test is negative usually it is better to avoid antimalarials. Please repeat the test from another lab if in doubt. Also she will need a series of blood tests done if fever continue beyond 72 hours.
