In brief: Mosquito bites

Are you in a country where there are malaria parasite carrying mosquotoes, but not all mosquitos cause malaria.
If you are in endemic area, or have travelled there, than you have to see if you come up with fever, than seek treatment.You can use local steroid cream or calamine lotion for the rash.So good luck, let us know where you have been.
