Mosquito bites, itching. Hemoglobin, hematocrit, RBC count high. Negative west nile virus test. Treatment?

Oh my goodness sakes, most definitely! I have never done this before but thank you! About 2 month s ago I was bitten 20 times by mosquitoes in the swamps of XXXXXX . I am still itching, the bites are still present and now, my Hemoglobin , Hematocrit and Red Blood Cell Count are in the high limits. Can these results be as a result of the mosquito bites? the West Nile Virus test was negative.

Hi,
Thank you for asking question on health care magic
it seems you are suffering from allergy due to mosquito bites
take an anti histamine drug like cetrizine once daily at bed time
apply calamine lotion 2-3 times daily
it will pass off in due course
if there is no improvement after 2-3 weeks better consult a deratologist
Hope this answer will serve your purpose
Take care
