My 2 y.o. stepped into a ant pile and has ant bites everywgere on her leg. She keeps trying to scratch it. Is there anything I can do for relief and healing? She's 2 1/2.

Benadryl and Calamine lotion.

We have a fire ant problem in my yard that I'm constantly chasing and treating. :(

I'd say benedryl, maybe some calamine if you have it. And ice. Icing helps relieve itch.
