The Symptoms of a Mosquito Bite

Mosquito bites can be unnoticeable, or they can be extremely irksome and lead to serious infections. Being aware of the symptoms will help you keep them under control, and spot early signs of further illness. As female mosquitoes pierce your skin and feed on your blood, they also inject a little bit of their saliva. This saliva consists of protein that most people are allergic to, which turns into the bump that people associate with mosquito bites. After the first day, the bump may begin to turn reddish brown and start to itch. More serious symptoms include fever, headaches, and joint paints. If you or someone around you begins to experience these after a mosquito bite, it is highly recommended to contact a doctor.
