Aubrey attacked by ants!!!
I do mean attacked! We were at ds soccer practice last night and she was just playing. All the sudden I hear her saying "Ow" so I looked over and she was squatting down holding her foot. I ran over there and 2 other mom's came to help while we ripped her shoes and shorts off. We or she ended up w/ at least 25 bites up her leg! I have not counted but there are so many. We put a baking soda paste and wrapped it up. It seemed to keep the swelling down right along w/ benadryl. She woke at 2:30 (when the drugs wore off) and we redosed her. Poor baby!!! She finally gets adventerous and look what it got her!

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Poor sweetie! They make a tube of stuff called "after bite" that works really well. I used it on Maggie's. Now when Maggie's eczema on her feet itch, she says "ants".

OH MY, don't use afterbite!!! LOL! While camping last month, my 6 year old nephew got bitten by an ant, and his toe swelled enormously, he was also covered in mosquito bites to begin with....anyway, I had never used afterbite, but being ever-prepared for anything, had some on hand. I put it on his poor little toe, and this 85lb 6 year old SCREAMED BLOODY MURDER and cried for an hour!!! I have never ever in my life felt so bad. I guess it stings like a mofo!! It works, but I wouldn't recommend it for children. They ended up taking him to the ER because I convinced them his toe looked like it was going to pop off his already chubby little foot, lol. There was nothing they could do except give him benedryl. I hope they heal up quickly....poor bug :(

Poor Aubrey!! Nathan often gets bit by the fire ants. The bites don't seem to bother him as much as they do me and dh (maybe he's just a tough cookie). We have used after bite KIDS with him and he never complains or shows any signs of discomfort when applied. Nathan reacts badly to other bug bites though. Something bit the poor little guy on both eyelids while he slept (in our house) and his eyes swelled to the point of almost being shut. He had to be put on steroids. It's gotten to where I hate taking him outside. Mosquitos and no see ums just tear the boy up!!

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Oh my God! Your daughter lived one of my two nightmares!! (The other is getting attacked by geese). That poor kid. I'm sorry! Jeez - were these fire ants or something? They sound so vicious!

Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
Oh no!! Poor Aubrey! That happened to Halley a few weeks ago - they were all over her back (not sure how that happened - dh was with her). Between those and the lovely bruise across her face and the matching one on her hand where the IV was, people probably think we abuse her.

Sorry to hear about the ant attack. Hope all of her bites are better soon.

YIKES! Ants. Meggy was sitting too quietly one day. I checked on her and she had them crawling all over her. My heart was beating all so hard. Seemed she did not get any bites, but she didn't say anything. she just sat there and watched.
