Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

No.. no medications is needed.. this is not the age to deworm... and its not necessary to deworm all child, only if the child is not feeding wel, underweight, anemia, only then deworming will be done....that too 16 month is very young...

Hello sam;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
One of the common symptom of worm infestation in children is grinding of teeth so you need to deworm your child.At 16 months of age you can give syrup-Zentel (Albendazole) 5 ml (5ml contains 200mg ) which is the required dose for the age of your child.
