    Hello. Sorry about that. Please why do you combine artesunate and laridox? For the treatment of malaria, it's advised you first do a rapid test to be sure, and it's not advisable to combine different classes of antimalarials just as you have done. The cold, Cattarh and cough might be viral or bacterial in origin. Your doctor need to listen to your chest to be sure what you have isn't community acquired pneumonia. The symptoms are quite similar to malaria. Take care
