Today I walked out to my mail box to mail out my netflix. All of a sudden it felt like I brushed up against something like a dry weed . So I look down and my ankle is covered in like 30 fire ants (They bit the hell out of me). So my question is do you ladies have any home remedies for a pregnant mom to try? My ankle burns and itches like crazy!!!

mix water and baking soda to make a paste and lather it on.

I need to go buy some baking soda. I used to keep a couple of boxes around the house. But I threw my all my open boxes of it away when we moved (and I keep forgetting to buy more).

you can also use diaper rash cream it will help with the burning and itching.

I have white heads at each bite site. Should I pop them? I heard that you get the white heads because of the poison that they inject you with.

I found a benedryl anti itch cream at target today...its for infants and toddlers but i bet it would work. Its just a topical gel though...good luck!
