Mosquito Bites to the Leg

Female comes in to the ED with a complaint of 6 mosquito bites to the lower leg. She states she is sure that they are mosquito bites because it’s summer, she was outside at night and she saw and felt each mosquito as she was bitten. When asked if she has ever been bitten by a mosquito before and why she thinks this is an emergency, the patient replies, “Yes, I’ve been bitten by mosquitoes before but I’ve never had 6 bites on the same leg.”
