I think I'm allergic to ant bites

    And I got bit on my finger by a fire ant a few days ago. Although the itching and swelling has gone down a lot, a small bubble formed around the bite. Anyone know what thats all about? What to do about it, if anything? It looks like there is fluid inside and it's kind of white. It's red around the bubble too. Fortunately it doesn't hurt or itch or anything.

    Any help would be appreciated. I want it to go away, it looks gross

    Are you sure?


    The blisters become itchy and are prone to infection if they are broken. So try real hard not to scratch them open. If they are not properly cleaned or treated, they may cause an infection or leave permanent scarring.

    Sounds normal to me. You never had a fireant bite before? I usually just pop it so it won't be so itchy.

    hahaha for some reason I don't think he'd be willing to do that :)

    I don't wanna pop it! It's too gross and besides wouldn't that leave a mark. I'm thinking more along the lines of just staring at it until it goes away
