Thank you in advance!
My hubby and 3 children (ages 10, 7 and 5) are cruising to PNG next week. The cruise is for 10 days. 4 of these days will be spent visiting surrounding islands such as Alotau etc. These will be day trips only from around 9.00 - 4.00 when we have to jump back on the ship. I have a script here for all of us for malarone tablets. I have been doing some reading up on these and spoke to my Chemist yesterday. He suggested another pill called Doxycycline. My problem is that my kids can't take any anti nausea drugs just in case any of these medicines make them feel ill. What is the risk of us actually contracting this disease when we won't actually be frequenting land that much? As it stands, it looks like we may only visit one island as it is. I really don't want the kids feeling sick the whole trip due to the medication, and am tossing up whether we should just enjoy the cruise and not get off on any islands. Would wearing long sleeve shirts and pants and smothering ourselves in Bushmans etc suffice considering the length of time we are there??? Could someone give me some suggestions or scenarios of what they think is best. I have read that some people have moved there to live for a couple of years, and they have chosen not to take any anti malaria drugs. I'm in two minds of what to do...... HELP! We leave next Wednesday.....
