Home Remedy for Fire Ant Bite

Family & Parenting,Health,Home Improvement
ake an antihistamine (like Benadryl) to help prevent allergic reactions and swelling

# After washing the bites, as soon as possible:

* Worcestershire sauce. Cover the bite(s) with a paper towel and saturate with the sauce. Read more.

* Hot water. Read more.

* Put a penny on each welt and tape it on with scotch tape. This can provide almost immediate relief with the welts being gone in a few hours. Read user comments.

* Bleach and water (half and half) or full strength, followed in 15 minutes by a slathering of Arm & Hammer Advance White toothpaste with baking soda and peroxide. Read user comments.

* Cut open a fresh lime and rub the area in several different directions until you feel the burning and itching stop. Once you've saturated the area with the lime and lime juice, you won't even get any pustules or scabs. Also, you won't get scars! Read users comments about fire ant bites and lime.

* Ammonia alone, or alternately applying ammonia and hydrogen peroxide with two rags, cotton balls, or paper towels. A reader writes: "A touch of ammonia on the bite immediately (within 15 minutes, or the body begins to heal by covering over the wound) will neutralize the venom.

* Plantain extract. Read user comments.

* Soak in a tub of warm water with 3 cups of 20 Mule Team Borax. Borax is actually the mineral boron. So you are taking a mineral bath. This draws out the venom.

Read one man's rather entertaining account of his first encounter with fire ants after moving from Washington state to Texas.

* Topical steroid cream such as a 1/4% or stronger hydrocortisone cream.

* Baking soda and water (thick paste)

* Meat tenderizer and water (thick paste)

* Alcohol

* Vinegar. (This is the suggested solution for use with box jellyfish.)

* Crushed aspirin (thick paste). May help even after a day.

* Salt (thick paste)

* Tea Tree oil (may also be good for other insect bites, such as, chiggers, fleas and mosquitoes)

* Aloe jell

* Liquid dishwashing soap (not dishwasher soap). Read user comments.

* Freshly cut onion

* Peroxide

These can reduce the pain and itching. You can carry a small spray bottle of some of these mixtures with you to use immediately if you know you will be in an infested area that is not close to the house.

# Apply an ice cube to reduce pain and itching

The first step to treating fire ant bites is to remove all your clothing and make sure every single ant has been removed from the body. This will help to prevent any kind of further stinging and problems. Make sure you get the remaining ant off and then lay down and elevate the part or parts of the body that has been stung by a fire ant.
