How to identify whether its a dengue or normal bite? velato Dec 24th, 07, 11:30 AM #1
Well,tis morning when i was sleeping,a mosquito bite woke me up,the bite is different from any bites.Usually,after a bite, it will get itchy and red but that morning when it got itchy and i rubbed my fingers onto it,i cant feel the ease effect when rubbing.It's as if the itchiness is from inside

When i take a look,it is a mosquito bite.....Is this a dengue or normal bite?

you cant indentify if t is a dengue bite from a normal bite. But when you caught dengue, your under arm will have red spots and your fever will come and go and come and go and come and go... so when that happen you know what to do. Better check with doctor when that happens. For now please just dont be so worried.

no difference between the bites. dengue is a viral fever and you will experience typical viral symptoms (go google it) in a few days.

mozzie bites subside pretty fast but has it occurred to you that you may be bitten by other insects? i.e. bed bugs? bed bug bites are much more itchy and do not subside quickly (can take up to a week). it is also further exacerbated by rubbings/scratchings.

I agree with lJohn78. There is no discernable diff. So there's no point fretting over it now. Just wait and see.

Theres no difference between a bite from a mosquito with the dengue virus and a mosquito without.
Effects set in about 3-4 days later.

Don't worry too much. See a doctor if fever comes up

Way Of The Dragon: From a distance - 20 paddlers move in perfect rhythm to a muted drum beat, gracefully skimming the water's surface. Up close - determined grunts and strained sinews with oars in grip, dig vigorously into the water. The majestic head of the dragon fronts this contraption but the real heart lies just behind it, at the apex of the bow. Like a conductor of an orchestra, the drummer leads his crew with the calculated beat of his drum. Such is the realm of dragon boating.

Experienced dengue before and it gotten me a 4 days suite at a hospital

All u can do is to wait for the next one week. If symptoms like fluctuating fever,rashes or even vomiting appears. Go for a blood test.
