About 3 years ago I had Ross River Virus. I have ALWAYS been really badly affected my mosquito bites - they come up massive on me and last for weeks.
Anyway, recently I got badly bitten - I had about 30 massive welts on me. I came out with a rash on my back, and now I feel like I have did when I had Ross river - achy, tired, spaced out, sore feet...
Can I catch Ross River twice? I always thought getting it once gave immunity??
