Malaria can lay dormant in the body for days, weeks month and even up to a year which could mean it is mistaken for another problem long after you have returned home. The preventative action of Doxycycline will stop this from happening by killing the bacteria before you become symptomatic. Doxycycline works by attacking the cells of bacteria to stop them from producing protein. This will in turn stop them from being reproduced thus stopping the infection in its tracks so that it dies off. The body will then be able to rid itself of the parasitic cells naturally preventing it from getting to the liver where it is able to cause further health problems to your internal organs.
