No need for any testing as long as you continue to feel fine. Over the counter Anti-itch creams and/or Benadryl can be pursued for relief of itching.

There is no need to get tested, if you do not have symptoms other than reaction to sites of bites. If you get fever, weight loss or other symptoms, it would be prudent to see a doctor.
