Is it true that only dengue mosquitoes bite in morning, If it is so, then what should I do to cure it ?

5 days back a mosquito bit me on my hand at 10-11 am in a hospital. The area first swelled to a pea size with itching and then gradually subsided.Today I felt stomach pain,slight fever and then a bit uneasy for a while. then I got okay. Does dengue fever goes very high or remains mild ? What should I do ? Additional information- 3-4 hr before stomach pain and headache I ate fast food from a canteen. I am 21y/o, female.

Hello.welcome.Dengue fever is generally very high and it becomes very difficult to distinguish from other types of fever clinically.If your fever becomes high and you start having doubts then you can get NS1 antigen testing done which is diagnostic of dengue.Just wait and watch.Good luck.

Thanks for query,
You might have malarial fever too.
Go for blood test for TC,DC,Platelet count malarial parasites.
Loe platelet count may doubt of having Dengue fever.
If blood shows malarial parasites,it indicates Malaria.
Go for treatment accordingly.
Ok and bye.
