Our expert says:
If you don't live in a malaria area it is unlikely that you will get malaria from it (although not impossible). Put something like Phenergan or Anthisan cream on the bite. If you develop a flu like illness within the next month and you live in an area with high incidence of malaria, let your doctor do a blood test to exclude malaria.
