Ant bites?

we were playing outside and my 3 year old stepped on a pretty large black ant hill. within seconds she had a bunch crawling up her legs and chest, etc, i immediately stripped her down and removed them all from her but she did get bit a few times on different areas on her body. i brought her in, washed her down with soap and water and treated the bites with hydrocortizon(sp?) cream. aside from keeping an eye out for allergic reaction is there anything else i can do for her?

  • don't let her scratch them, scratching will make it worse, other than that your doing what I would do!
