    Sore throat associated with malaria usually resolves some days after treatment of the malaria. You can add Vit C tablets to the strepsil you are already taking. A simple analgesic like paracetamol will also help. If sore throat persists however, or is associated with significant cough, it may be due to an infection of your upper airways. You will need to see a Dr for this
