Solution

Methanoic acid is injected into the skin of a person during an ant sting.

an ant sting are acidic, as methanoic acid is injected into the body, which causes severe pain and an itching sensation. Applying a baking soda solution (a base) on the skin soothes the pain by neutralising the acid. Thus, the effect of these stings is neutralised.
