Recommendation Needed | Treatment for Fire Ant Bites

Does anyone have any home remedies or over the counter recommendations to treat fire ant bites? I keep thinking I must be allergic to them as I keep getting huge swollen spots that hurt for days and days....is this your experience? (New to the area) OUCH! Thanks in advance! ~ J

The old Mrs. Stewart's Blueing laundry additive works wonders & on scorpion bites as well!

Ammonia works good , Mosquito bites also.

I would suggest lavender it's good for all kinds of bites!

I break open the puss pocket as soon as they appear. If not opened it takes me much longer to heal and leaves a hardened area around the bite

Re: recommendation for fire ants. 1) Wipe off ants immediately; 2) spray with W-D 40. The sting goes away in 15 minutes. The puss pockets emerge in the next day or so. This method has worked for me!

We use doTerra Purify essential oil blend. When we put it on right away the puss pocket doesn't develop and we don't even get a bump! The nasty looking bumps used to take weeks to heal. All natural. And Clove oil works on Stinging Nettle! Hallelujah!
