Customer Question

I was bit by a huge amount of mosquitos a week ago sat. Some welts were larger than a ping pong ball. I have always been very susceptible to bites but this was extreme. Since 2 days after I have been experiencing diarrhea, nausea, low grade temps and nausea with just 1 episode of vomiting. Could these symptoms have been caused by the large amount of bites?

If the mosquitos were infectious.
West nile for example.
However, your symptoms do not really sound like this, rather more likely viral gastroenteritis.
Or food poisoning.
I would touch base with your doctor tomorrow, unless this gets worse, then go in tonight.
3 days with no improvement in symptoms is a good enough reason to go in.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
