Making a Malaria diagnosis?
"Although it is possible to test yourself for Malaria with a rapid finger prick test one should bear in mind that finger prick test are NOT 100% accurate.
This implies that a test might return a negative result, when you do in fact have Malaria. It is therefore important to continue testing every 4 hours if you continue to feel ill.
Ultimately the only certain way of confirming a malaria diagnosis is by confirming the parasite's presence on examination of a patient's blood under a microscope.
