Medication "Immar": instructions for use, composition, analogues
Walking in the evening on the street and enjoying the clean air, many of us do not even suspect that a late walk can cause a disease such as malaria.
And mosquitoes can infect each person's malarial parasites.
The inconspicuous bite of a double-winged insect of the mosquito family can result in an unforeseen hospital. If only about ten years ago this illness did not go beyond the borders of the African continent, today anopheles( malarial mosquitoes) are found everywhere. So the bite of annoying insects can not be left without proper attention today.

The main methods of combating malaria are treatment with effective medications. Preventive measures that significantly reduce the risk of contracting malaria are directed mainly at protecting against mosquitoes:
- installation of mosquito devices in the home;
- treatment of clothing and body before going to the street in the evening, at night or in places where there are clearly observed large concentrations of mosquitoes, special aerosols;
- application of a cream with a fragrance that mosquitoes do not tolerate;
