Michael and i dug up our potatos and we got in an ant hill, you would think we would have learned since the same thign happened last year!
But anyway, i have ant bites everywhere!  I even have one where the cloth part of my flange had pulled up and when  put the new bag on today the bite is under there now, UGH!!!
And the bites are all over my belly and my back and the inside of my legs. 
And right near my flange, and here is my problem.
I learned the hard way last year that hydrocortisone cream will take that bag right off, and i am allergic to benadryl.  
Any ideas of what i could put on the bites right at the bag that wouldn't remove the bag?

Try a paste of soda and water --- same thing you can use for stings. It might stop the itching, stinging of the bites. SHouldn't interfer with appliance.
