Can mosquito bites cause fever?

No

Mosquito bites, by themselves, should not cause fever. Bites become "inflamed" commonly (not infected) and can be red and a bit swollen, but again no fever. True "infection" is quite uncommon. That said, mosquitoes, in certain parts of the world, can transmit all kinds of infections which CAN cause fever: malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, are all spread by the bite of an infected mosquito.

See below

If you are referring to tick-borne relapsing fever (TBRF), then - no. Blisters are not associated with it as far as I can discern from then most recent reports.

For U S spiders, this is unlikely unless a secondary infection occurs and is not treated adequately. If this is going on, see your doctor.

11 mth old swollen nodes on back of head at neck for 2 weeks. Went down 1 day & came back.No fever or other symptoms. Bug bites on head. Call doc?

Reactive

Fever-adult
These nodes are reacting to the bug bite on the scalp. Ibuprofen could help with swelling. If the nodes continue to swell or get worse a course of antibiotics could be helpful. So i would see the doc in 1-2 weeks if not better.

My baby is 4 months she has a high fever and when i carry he she cries alot like if something hurts her im scared she might have denque cause she has mosquito bites can you tell me what to do

Fevers

Fevers for the most part aren't dangerous and are just the body's natural reaction to fighting off an infection. Most of these infections are viral and may be accompanied by runny nose, sore throat, congestion, mild rash, or nothing at all. Since fevers aren't dangerous, we usually treat the fever with acetaminophen or ibuprofen just to make the child more comfortable as their body fights the illness. "Red flags" that we look for with fever to indicate something more serious is going on are: -Fevers that last 5 days or more -Fevers persistently above 104F orally -A child that acts very sick - very irritable or difficult to wake -Difficulty breathing -Vomiting, diarrhea, refusal to drink, or dehydration -A purple rash, esp on the legs -Stiff neck -Any complaints of pain such as the ear, throat, stomach or a joint Since she is crying as if something is hurting her, you should call her doctor and have her seen. As always, use your judgement. If you think that your child is ill, err on the side of caution and call your child's doctor.

5 yr old has a raised lymph node on upper shoulder just under the back of his neck. Has a bug bite about 1 inch under node .had a cold last week. Could bite = pea size node.no fever just itchy bite?

Probably.

Itching
Kids have very reactive immune systems, and it's not uncommon for them to develop enlarged lymph nodes after minor insults. If it doesn't resolve in a few days, a fever develops or the child appears ill, see a physician.
