Customer Question
We live in sw...

We live in sw florida just got hit by hurricane. My husband went into yard stepped in red ant next. probably has 30 or 40 bites. I gave him two benedryls immediately. From there he came inside and sat down. Started sweating profusely. Is eyes rolled up in his head briefly tried calling 911 nobody answered I got ice and put it on his his bites. Now he is lying down. His face is still pretty red. He does have high blood pressure issues. Says he is feeling better that the benedryl must be kicking in. not sure what to do now please advise.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Any other skin concerns?

It probably started about 1 hour ago. No just the bites. Ice taking swelling down. concerned about red face though. no fever.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
