How likely is it for me to have tungiasis?

Patient : I went to the beach and received bites from around 20-30 sand fly bites on my feet as well as a few mosquito bites. 24 hours later there are still no signs of tungiasis just a bitch of itching. How likely is it to present later on and is it likely it's there and still hasn't shown any signs?In other words how long does it take for tungiasis to show it's presence? Thanks in advance!
