Hi I went to India and got a mosquito bite

Patient: Hi I went to India and got a mosquito bite is it diseased?

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.It can’t be predicted whethe r you acquired malaria or other mosquito-borne diseases.If you develop any fever over the next few days, you can prophylactically take Quinine or Chloroquine for 3 days. But from a single mosquito bite, chances of getting the infection is miniscule.Hope this was helpful,Regards
