Hi doctor,

I was playing football and I had got bitten by a black and white mosquito. After some time, I got shaking and had a fever, head pain, and a back muscle pain.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

According to the history, you have to rule out dengue fever, chikungunya or malaria fever. So take Paracetamol 500 mg two tablets for six hours until the blood tests are done. Avoid mosquito breeding places like stagnant water near home, wear full sleeve clothes. Take an adequate amount of fluids. The probable cause could be due to Aedes mosquito. You can get a complete blood count, IgM test for dengue, IgG for malaria, microscopy, blood smear test done.
