What are the similiar symptoms of malaria and dengue?
A few similar symptoms of malaria and dengue are pain behind the eyes, nausea and rashes.
Malaria may cause anemia and jaundice (yellow coloring of the skin and eyes) because of the loss of red blood cells. If not promptly treated, the infection can become severe and may cause kidney failure, seizures, mental confusion, coma, and death.
You may experience fever and flu-like illness, including shaking chills, headache, muscle aches, and tiredness. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea may also occur.
The difference between the two is that malaria is caused by a parasite and not a virus or bacteria. Bacteria are microorganisms that cause fever and diseases.
