Ant Allergy: Allergic reactions to ant bites occur not because of the venom itself but because of chemicals produced by the body's immune system while fighting the venom. Depending on the level of sensitivity, this could occur after multiple ant stings or even a single sting. See an allergist for desensitization shots.
