    Hey Trapper7

    No joke. Expect the likely development of water-filled pustules. Blisters form within 4 hours, pustules form within a few days. Scratching or breaking the pustules can result in secondary bacterial infections. These pustules take about 10 days to two weeks to heal.

    Use topical steroid ointments and oral antihistamines to relieve the itching and swelling. Consult your doctor if you start seeing complications.

    And indeed, congratulations---you never forget your "first time"!

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Thanks for the info! You totally sound like a doctor [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] My foot is not really attractive right now (not that it ever is) but it looks like I have pimples all over it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] Oh well, I'll get over it. I keep having flashbacks of all the ants all over my foot, it's freaking me out. I'm scared to go in the grass now and I'm constantly looking at the ground! I'm petrified [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
    Great Googly Moogly!

    Stop whinning, I've been bit hundreds if not thousands of times. It's not that bad. If they advace above the knees then you have a right to carry on about it. Otherwise it's just a few blisters. Besides fireant venom is good for you.

    It's only really bad if you have an allergic reaction... and you should know that relatively soon afterwards.

    Ahhh... the fire ant dance. No lessons required. You will get better as you get more experience. I still do the dance occasionally.

    Almost everybody that does the fireant dance also sings the fireants song. While each person does the fireant dance a little different, they always sings the song the same. It goes, "AHHHHHH AHHHHHHHHH GET EM OFFFF AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"
