Ant Bite?: The ant should not be causing an actual "headache" but is sure might be bothering him if it crawled up his nose. Poor little guy! He could have sustained an ant bite. He's very young, so I don't recommend any medication, but watch him today, if he is hard to console, bring him to his pediatrician for an exam.
