Q.

Deworming kids

I have an 18month old baby boy and my niece is 8years they stay with me and I have heard that if I deworm the 8year old I should deworm my son as well. Is it true? Do I have to deworm them with what?

Thanks

It is a good idea to de-worm both children. Use Vermox syrup 5ml twice daily for 3 days. The dose is the same for both children.
