May I suggest the comment should be You don't need malaria prophylacticsFULL STOP.
I've been in various parts of SE Asia in the wet - jungles, hiking in forests, wetlands - and relying on a chemical rather than good common sense (to wear long sleeved clothes, mossie spray, etc) is IMHO irresponsible.
The whole point is not only about unnecessarily putting chemicals into the body, it is also minimising the development of drug resistance in mosquito's. How many drugs are now useless because the vector has become immune.
