Good afternoon, Thanks for the good work. Please, I'm on malaria drugs, but I'm not sure my baby has malaria. But in case he has, can the malaria drugs I'm taking be passed to him from breast milk and thereby help him?

Although he is not showing any sign of sickness, I'm just asking YOU.

No.

it is not advisable to randomly treat malaria without a confirmed laboratory test. So if you suspect your child has malaria get a positive confirmation test FIRST & let the doctor prescribe an appropriate malaria drug.
