Looking for a little advice - I'm travelling to Lagos soon for work and will be staying for 5 nights. I won't be doing any sightseeing at all and will be literally going from the hotel, to a car, to the office and back again - outside time should be minimal (and in daylight). I'll be treating my clothes with Permithrin and using something like DEET (need to research best one) on my skin.
We're staying in a 'good' hotel - Radisson Blu Anchorage - and when I contacted them they advised we don't need mosquito nets as there is air conditioning in the room, otherwise I would take one :)
My question is - with all of this in mind and limited chance of exposure - do I really need to take anti malarials? The reason I ask is my body always reacts terribly to medication, and i don't want to end up ill and missing the meetings I'm there for. Besides its not 100% effective anyway.
Just curious to hear your thoughts, thanks :)
