Question

I have been bitten by fire ants. Can I use Tecnu extreme to relieve the itch and remove the poisons?

Answer

A red fire ant will secure itself to its prey and use its abdominal stinger to inject alkaloid venom into the victim. Tecnu Extreme has not been tested for, and to our knowledge, does not have the ability to remove venom from its prey. We do make an over-the-counter anti-itch gel, called Calagel, that may help relieve itching symptoms.
