Unhappy I got bitten by a mosquito with "black and white" spots - October 16th 2011, 03:36 PM

Hi! first of all, i'm new here. so yeah

anyway, I'm quite alarmed. Just this afternoon, I got bitten by a mosquito with "black and white" spots on it. It bit my right hand. Red mark appeared but after a while, it disappeared.

I read in an article that a mosquito with black and white spots is a "dengue" carrier. should i really be alarmed? what do I do? i'm really worried.

but I also read in one article that we really cannot tell if a mosquito is carrying dengue or not. does that mean when they said "they are dengue carrier" do they mean they CAN carry the disease BUT do not GUARANTEE that all mosquito with such type carry the disease?

THANK YOU.

Yes, it means they CAN carry it, but it's not GUARANTEED.

There was a thread similar to this here.

If you are concerned then go to your doctor. Otherwise, record the date you were bit, record any illnesses you come up with for the next 14 days. This way you can tell a doctor how long you may have been infected.

It can't hurt to see a doctor. So I suggest that. Even if they say you are in the clear, I'd suggest keeping a records book for 14 days.

And of course, welcome!!!
