Malaria tablets: Potentially any. There isn't an association between penicillin allergy and allergy to any malaria medication, whether it is for prevention or treatment. The two antibiotics used for malaria are tetracycline and sulfonamides, but these are not related to penicillin and do not have cross-sensitivity to it.
