How to Treat Bug Bites
Fire-Ant Bites and Stings
Symptoms: A burning sensation, followed by red, itchy bumps that turn into white, fluid-filled blisters.
How to treat: Clean the bites with soap and water. To stop itching, apply calamine lotion or anti-inflammatory hydrocortisone as directed on the package label. If you experience increased pain, worsening redness, or fever, call your doctor; you could have a secondary infection.
Good to know: In rare cases, some people develop an anaphylactic reaction. Call 911 if you have those symptoms.
