How can you tell if you have a cicada bug bite?

In brief: Most bites look same

I'm not sure that cicadas actually bite- most times it is hard to tell one bug bite from another with the exception of brown recluse spider bites and ticks Most bug bites do not cause problems except for being annoying and itching You can apply over the counter cortisone cream if there is itching
