Do mosquito bites and flea bites look the same?

No

first because fleas jump rather than fly they usually are concentrated below the knees and under clothes unless the animal carrier slept on your bed. skeeter bites are usually on exposed skin flee bites are small red spots in clusters, skeeter bites much larger, pale in center

What can you do to tell if you got flea bites or tick bites?

Location, location

Flea_bites
You are more likely to have a tick bite if your are spending time in forested areas. Flea bites tend to occur closer to home or at the ocean. Some fleas will infest lawns and homes if pest do not have proper flea control. Here are two helpful websites from the Centers for Disease Control and EPA Ticks: http://www.cdc.gov/ticks/ Fleas: http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/factsheets/flea-tick.htm

I want to send a picture of a swollen mosquito bite?

See your doctor

Mosquito_bite
If your bug bite has been swollen or getting worse for more than 2 days, you should see your doctor to check if it needs antibiotic treatment for infection. Usually infected if red, swollen, hot to touch, has discharge. It is very difficult to identify and treat an infected bug bite from a picture alone.

Pictures of brown recluse spider bite suggest I have one. What do I do?

See doc

Open-uri20121013-21105-a1i3on
The brown recluse (Loxoceles reclusa) can cause a variety of symptoms after a bite, however, a lot of the time, the bite is minor. If the area is becoming painful, oozing, blistering, or necrotic (black dead tissue), or if you have any systemic signs like nausea, vomiting, fevers, muscle pain or other problems, then you should see a physician ASAP.

Dr. Pratip Nag answered:

Spider bite or something else. Maybe flea bite. What should I do?

Topical ointment

For flea bites use topical ointments that help with itching like Benadryl ointment, calamine lotions. Usually they get better in 2-7 days. If the itching is not better with topical ointments then take some Benadryl by mouth. For kids the dose is based on weight so consult with your doctor. Occasionally bites can get infected with bacteria. Look out for lots of swelling, pain, and possibly pus.

the groin. Flea bites may be clustered into 3 itchy bumps that bleed & blanch (turn white) when you press on them. They tend to be found at skin folds (breast or groin) & folds of joints (ankle, knee, elbow, axilla) as well as legs. A rash & swelling can occur as well as secondary infection from scratching. A skin biopsy is sometimes needed for accurate diagnosis.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

Have a raised bump that looks like a mosquito bite. It's skin coloured and raised, surrounded by red skin. It's very itchy. Can it be a flea bite?

That is possible

Culicidae
But hard to diagnose without more info and an exam of the lesion. If you get more, see a doctor. If it goes away or you find critters on your pet, spray spray spray.
