I'm staying in Brunei (Empire) and Kota Kinabalu (Rasa Ria/Tanjung Aru) in February.
There are 6 of us in total, my mum (75), me and hubby, daughter 8 and twins at 3.
My husband and I are planning to take my 8 year old on some trips so we will have our typhoid injection and take malaria tablets however my mum and 3 year olds will stay in resort. My mum reacted badly last time to Larium so she's reluctant to take malaria tablets and I only want to give the twins them and typhoid injections if necessary.
I did speak to my GP who was astonished I would even contemplate going to Borneo with or without kids because in his opinion it was just one big swamp where the army went to train! So he wasn't too helpful (to be honest, he thinks Benidorm is exotic!).
I have read through these forums but I can't find whether the consensus is, if you stay in resort you should be ok. I know proper medical advice should be sought but would value anyones opinion?
Thanks in advance
