Title: Malaria Fever: Home Remedies, Causes, Symptoms, and Prevention Tips

Home Remedies For Malaria Fever - Causes and
Malaria is a parasitic infection transmitted
through mosquitoes that have afflicted the human
race over the millennia. The disease imposes a
great socio-economic burden on humanity.
According to the latest WHO report, India ranks
fourth in infections and deaths caused by
malaria. Children, pregnant women and travelers
are more prone to get malaria. The female
Anopheles mosquito exchanges Plasmodium parasites
from its saliva into the individual's blood. The
parasites, after entering the bloodstream, move
up to the liver and reproduce itself. Within 48
to 72 hours the parasites invade to red blood
cells and multiply inside the RBC which results
in the infected cells to burst open. Each time
they burst, the person will experience a bout of
fever, chills, and sweating. Out of different
subspecies of Plasmodium, only five are dangerous

  • What are the Causes of Malaria?
  • The Plasmodium parasites that causes malaria in
    humans are
  • Plasmodium falciparum This is the most common
    malaria parasite mainly found in Africa. Most of
    the time the parasite is responsible for deaths
  • Plasmodium vivax These causes milder symptoms
    compared to Plasmodium falciparum. They stay in
    the liver for up to 3years, due to which there is
    a risk of reoccurrence.  Commonly found in Asia
    and South America.
  • Plasmodium ovale Fairly uncommon and if
    occurred, can remain in the liver for several
    years without producing symptoms. Usually found
    in West Africa.
  • Plasmodium malarie The occurrence is quite
    unusual. They are only found in Africa.
  • Plasmodium knowlesi Malaria caused due to this
    parasite is very rare and found in parts of
    southeast Asia.

    experience cycles of malarial "attacks." An
    attack usually starts with shivering and chills,
    trailed by a high fever, followed by sweating and
    returns to normal temperature. The signs and
    symptoms typically begin within a few weeks after
    being bitten by an infected mosquito. However,
    some types of malaria parasites can lie dormant
    in the body for up to a year.
