Ant bite

A 20 month old boy developed swelling and irritation of the eye after an ant bit him on the outer lateral canthus of the eye at night. He kept rubbing the eye continuously due to itching.

He was given a super diluted dose of Apis 30c (1 drop of Apis in 1 cup of water and then gave only 3 cc out of this dilution. Within 20 minutes of the dose the swelling had subsided by about 80% and the child had stopped rubbing his eyes.
