Most Common Illnesses You Get From Mosquito Bites

From WebMD

It seems that decades ago, a mosquito bite was nothing more than an itchy nuisance.  Most kids that spend any time out in the woods might come home with several bites, but the end result was nothing more than a red bump and some irritation at most.  These days, the once seemingly harmless bite can lead to serious, debilitating diseases that have proliferated through the mosquito population worldwide.  Diseases such as Dengue Fever, West Nile Virus, and Chikungunya pose a serious threat to human health.  This post from WebMD outlines the most common mosquito vector diseases, as well as what to do if one is bitten by these blood-sucking pests.
