Should I see a specialist for anopheles mosquito bite I got on vacation? I am concerned about malaria.

In brief: Risk of malaria

Were you on vacation in an endemic area? Did you take prophylactic anti-malarials? How do you know it was anopheles? Lots of questions which should be addressed by a tropical/travel physician specialist or if unavailable at least an infectious disease doc.
