Malaria is a parasitic infection caused by protozoa of the genus Plasmodium. There are four known species which infect humans, all of which are transmitted through mosquito bites. Once inside the body, the parasites must mature in the liver before they are released into the bloodstream, whereupon they infect red blood cells in order to reproduce, eventually lysing the cell to break free and perpetuate the cycle of infection. It is during this phase that symptoms develop, often beginning as a vague flu-like illness which soon develops into recurrent paroxysms of chills, fever, and sweats. Two species, P. vivax and P. ovale, may persist in the liver and establish a chronic relapsing infection, and the other two species (P. falciparum and P. malariae) may persist for months or even years in red blood cells. P. falciparum is responsible for the most severe cases, and has the potential to cause fatal brain infections. Otherwise, untreated malaria typically results in prolonged weakness and malaise with chronically relapsing paroxysms of acute febrile symptoms, eventually leading to chronic anemia and hepatosplenomegaly due to the continual lysing of infected blood cells. The modern anti-malarial drugs Chloroquine and Artesunate are synthetic derivatives of quinine and artemisinin, the active constituents of traditional antimalarial herbs Cinchona officinalis and Artemisia annua.

Before going into an area heavily infested with mosquitoes, avoid the use of bath oils, soaps, perfumes, and the like, as these may attract insects. Reapply our Buzz Off! spray often while in the infested area. Sleeping under mosquito nets is encouraged.
Supplementing iron and vitamin C is discouraged in patients with malaria, as it may actually help the parasites. Low iron levels may even be protective against malarial infection.
Eating an unripe mango is an old folk remedy for malaria in some endemic areas.
