I received about a dozen bites. I knew the quicker I applied a remedy the better. So I dabbed on Grapefruit Seed Extract, Oregano oil, tea tree oil. Also took a homeopathic for poison ivy and such; can't hurt I thought.

Then I searched online and came up with EarthClinic and apple cider vinegar. I soaked the area in a vinegar compress for 15 minutes, and I'm certainly feeling better than at the beginning of the ordeal. And lastly, when I had gotten myself together, I prayed and surrounded my foot with healing energy. As you can see, quite a few things thrown into the mix.

Glad to find this site and will return for other remedies.

I have been bitten by fire ants while I was in bed. It's burning and painfully little white blisters and circle of red. I've put cider vinegar on the area. It's helping.

Thank you. I was starting to panic after a huge fire ant repeatedly bit me on my toe. It swelled immediately and was so painful I couldn't stand it. I live for away from any stores and read about the apple cider vinegar remedy. Instant relief.

I had several red ant stings on my leg and ankle. 6 hours, cold compresses and a benedryl later I read this advice about apple cider vinegar. I jumped up, got the cider and cotton balls and dabbed. Instant relief! It did wear off but just applied again. Thank you!

Recently I got red ant bites. It was quite uncomfortable and the best relief was the suggsestion I got on your website to soak your feet in apple cider vinegar.

It worked awesomely for my fire ant sting! Soaked my foot in apple cider vinegar 2 days post sting. The burning and swelling were intense prior to soaking. Afterwards I could walk without limping! Even went for my usual run! The vinegar drew it all out of my tissues and now I just have a huge blister. Not painful anymore at all. A little itchy but that's it. The blister is too big to pop so it's not red or painful and just clear. I'm leaving it alone...

I was bitten by fire ants on my feet and ankles and several yellow jacket stings all in one afternoon out on the farm. I treated immediately with cortisone cream and benedryl but relief was temporary at best. Itching and pistules with an area of redness and swelling extending several inches from the bites. Read your response on using cider vinegar. Dabbed that on and got immediate relief. Thank you for your advice.

Thank you! 3am and I wake up because of a stupid fire ant bite AGAIN on the second toe on my left foot. I think the ants put a GPS locater on me, always the same spot, but this they were fancy and bit between the toes. Read these posts, ran to the kitchen and all I could find was seasoned spice vinegar. I smell like Asian food but relief was immediate! Thank you!!

I'm allergic to fire ant bites, and my foot was swollen and sore for 3 days. I tried everything. I remembered that apple cider vinegar works wonders for a million other things, so I tried it on a lark. Instantly, my foot felt better and the swelling went down within minutes. Apple cider vinegar works is a miracle home remedy for treating fire ant bites!!!
