Hello doctor,

My kids are getting cold and fever because of tank water. Is there anything available so that we can put inside the tank to avoid disease?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I just read your query. Use tank water after boiling. Give your children lukewarm water for drinking not cold water. Give them steam of plain water two to three times a day whenever they get cold. Strengthen their immunity. You can give them one teaspoon of Chyawanprasha with lukewarm milk in the morning. Chyawanprasha can be given in children above three years of age.
