My daughter of 20 months has started licking walls and she scratches paint with nail and eat it. Initially she was doing it once in a while, but now doing very often. Please suggest any home remedy or tonic.

It is a behaviour problem. You need to counsel your child not to do these things. No drugs can stop that behaviour. Drugs are for the problems created by these behaviours like for worm infestation you can give syrup albendazole and for multivitamin and iron deficiency you can give iron and multivitamin syrup.
