Malaria
My son has been to Bulawayo and contracted malaria. He was diagnosed four days ago and prescribed Coartem. He still has the stumach runs, vomiting, body aches and fever. He is worried about this. How long will it take for him to recouperate? Doctor said he will be fine today, but is still very ill.

He should have responded to the medication by now and I suggest that he reconsults the doctor as soon as possible.
