The problem with Trypanosomyasis symptoms is that they appear within 1 to 3 weeks of infection. They usually include fever, skin lesions, rash, edema, and swollen lymph nodes. You need to act on these symptoms immediately and turn to the nearest infectious disease specialist to have some tests done and get an appropriate treatment, which depends on the symptoms and laboratory tests results. The treatment consists of anti-trypanosomal therapy. International tourists are not at great risk as there are no flies in the urban areas. They are usually found in the savannah and the dense vegetation along streams but may be acquired in East African game parks.
