Is it possible to develop allergies to ants? I have

Patient: Is it possible to develop allergies to ants? I have been bit several times before but about two years ago I became allergic to ant bites and got itchy all over and it lasts about 30-45 minutes after allergy medicine is taken.

Whenever you have ant bite take tab Zyrtec 10 mg immediately. As anytime you may have have severe reactionHope this will help you
