You have to give good quality deworming medicines daily for 7 nights then monthly for few months. Change the water, always use filter or per-boiled water. Use vegetables after washing thoroughly with boiled water. It is a sanitation/ hygeine problem. I hope he does not eat mud.

I have problem of hair failing and gastric from two days. Please advice me what should I do?
Healthy and glossy hair depends on a healthy and wholesome diet. Hair is made up of protein so a protein rich diet helps grow hair strong and healthy. Minerals are also important for lustrous hair. A recommended protein diet includes wheatgerm, pulses, legumes, and most importantly, soybean. Soybean is not only an excellent source of protein but it also acts as a DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) inhibitor reducing DHT levels in the body. Along with protein, Vitamin A and B rich foods like mangoes, dark green leafy vegetables, carrots, dried apricots, wholegrain cereals and peas will help prevent hair loss.
