I am a 21 years old women, a few days back when i’m heading home in the bus, i was suddenly aware that a mosquito about to bite me. The mosquito is black with white stripes. I managed to flick it just in time. I looked around my arms and there was a mosquito bite and it was not at all itchy. The red bump disappeared in just 2 hours. My question is what is the percentage of getting dengue fever when get bitten by black with white stripes mosquito although i am not sure whether it was that mosquito bitten me or not. Is there any chance our anibody can eliminate the virus on its own.
