In brief: Ant bites- not bad
Ants are insects, and all insects may bite people and cause inflammation and itching, and sometimes pain.
These are not dangerous and can be treated with benadyl pills and Hydrocortisone cream. You can stay home from work for many reasons, but this is not a good one and you will miss a day of work and a paycheck, for not a serious problem.
