My toddler was playing outside and gotten bit by red ants on her ankle and her chest and I need to know if you have any tips for treating the bites.

I got the same camping over the long weekend. Use a cold compress to numb the area and bring down the swelling. Next, take an antihistamine or hydrocortisone cream to alleviate the pain and itching...you can get both without a prescription at the drug store. Don't pop the bites if they blister, let them pop on their own and clean the area with soap to prevent infection.
