Hello..... Microscopic blood smear examination is usually done to confirm malaria... So get peripheral smear examination done.... A Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT) is an alternate way of quickly establishing the diagnosis of malaria infection by detecting specific malaria antigens in a person's blood...it comes as kit... Consult general physician first.
