Hi,
How are you? Mosquitoes indeed are carriers of diseases that are caused by bacteria, parasites or viruses such as malaria, Yellow Fever, or Dengue fever. However, anything that we swallow  is acted upon by the digestive enzymes in the mouth as well as the saliva produced by the salivary glands. The chance of the mosquito biting the throat is decreased. Try to observe for a few days and you can check with your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
