Do these simple things to keep your family save from malaria at your home.

Wear full sleeve protective clothing.

Spray insect repellants on your exposed skin.

Use a mosquito net over the bed if your bedroom is not air conditioned or screened. For additional safety, you can treat the mosquito net with the insecticide.

When you go out, in addition to spraying insect repellants on your exposed skin, you can also spray on your clothing. Mosquitoes find it easy to bite through thin clothing.

Keep your home and surroundings clean without any junks or wastes.

When it comes to controlling the disease, keep an eye out for the symptoms like fever with high temperature. As soon as you find any possible signs of malaria, consult your doctor immediately.

Make sure you do not keep your windows and doors open at night as mosquitoes get active during the night and pose a higher risk. You can either use a mosquito or any net to seal your window and then open for the whole day.

Depending on the condition and prescription, you can take anti malarial tablets.

If you are a regular user of sunscreen, make sure you apply sunscreen first and then use an insect repellent.

Currently, there is no over the counter medication available for malaria. So the only way you can treat this disease is by taking all the necessary precautions and safety measures.
