Symptoms improve within two to four weeks in most people treated for a travel-associated illness at NYU Langone. However, symptoms of malaria and typhoid fever may return after treatment with medication if the infection has not been completely cured.
NYU Langone physicians provide ongoing care for people with travel-associated infections, such as malaria, dengue, and typhoid fever. They also offer consultation before you travel if you’re planning to visit areas where these diseases are common.
If you’re traveling to a part of the world where the risk of contracting an infectious disease is high, talk to your NYU Langone physician a few months ahead of time about medications or vaccines that can help to protect you from illness.
