Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Surrounding of ants and flies around human secretory fluids and excreta like saliva, urine is a common finding and it is not suggestive of any underlying medical problem.

The chemicals or products that may present in the urine may attract the ants by their physical properties like smell.

Nothing to worry and it is a normal phenomenon. Continue the medication as advised by your doctor.

If you are concerned about this, giving a urine sample for complete urine examination will alleviate your worries.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.
