Can't list...: ...All the possible infections, viral, bacterial or parasitic. There are too many, and the answers i might provide will not be helpful. If you are concerned that you have an infection from an insect bite, you need to see a doctor who can physically look at it and make the diagnosis. Further, there are things that may look like an insect bite that may be something else.
