Question: I got several mosquito bites on my foot 2 days ago. My foot still feels numb. I have joint pain, and it seems like I'm getting pink eye. I'm exhausted. Is there a rapid test for the XXXXXXX virus.

Brief Answer:
Viral infection likely.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The symptoms that you have seem to be related to a viral infection. There is no specific test to diagnose it early. Right now it is best to start with symptomatic treatment- mild pain killer, increase in fluid intake, taking high dose of vitamin C and juicy fruits.
In case the symptoms are persistent then do consult a physician for related tests and a physical examination.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
