    Good initiative from the author author for giving tips as to how to protect the children from the scorching heat during the forthcoming summer. In Hyderabad the temperature is already reading at 40 degrees in March end itself and that means scorching heat wave is possible. Children are vulnerable to prickly heat which bothers them very much. Though many powders are available in the market nothing is trust worthy. Is there any home remedy to prevent and avoid prickly heat. For small pox neem leaves are the best to get rid of irritation and for prickly heat what is the way to bail out ?
