I’m planning for upcoming trips to Karachi Pakistan, Shanghai, Bangkok and farming areas in central Thailand, and the Philippines in the southern areas of Siquijor and Bukidnon, at least. Looks like I’ll be taking CHLOROQUINE in the foreseeable future. I must avoid malaria (and dengue) at all costs without going paranoid. I must do more research about chloroquine’s nutritional and biochemical effects, and how it will cooperate with the pile of other meds that I take on a daily basis. Appreciate any knowledge that can be shared on this topic. Maybe it’s also a good time to start researching quinine and other more traditional ways of avoiding mosquito bites in the first place. Perhaps, gin and tonic as an antimalarial?
I guess my old understanding, from the 60s, that Vitamin B11 helps against mosquito bites is a myth or at least questionable.
