Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

It would have been very beneficial for us if there was a difference, however unfortunately this is not the case. The only way to tell if the bite had anything to do with the infection is the occurrence of symptoms such as fever, headache, or body aches after a bite. So there is no way to notice visually any difference between the bites of mosquitoes and whether infected or not immediately after the bite.

Take care.

Dear customer,

Thanks for your reply.

It is true that you can identify the type of mosquito based on some of their characteristics. However there is no way to tell whether that mosquito is infected or not visually and also there is no different reaction to the bite based on whether infected or not. The only way to know is by the systemic manifestations and laboratory studies.

Take care.

Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
