Malaria Risk India: CDC vs. UK Guidelines

Jump to last reply

We are traveling to India in early October. I am trying to avoid taking meds because of a past blood reaction.

The CDC recommends anti-malarials but the UK publishes a map outlining high and low risk areas. According to the UK, everywhere we go will be low risk except for 1 day in Khajuraho and 1 day in Orcha. These cities in Madhya Predesh are at the edge (but still in) the high risk areas and we will not be outside from dusk to dawn.

I am trying to determine the relative risk in mid October vs. other months. Is it worth rescheduling to a time with lower risk or does the risk stay fairly constant?

Any perspectives would be appreciated.

Roosevelt.
