Though probiotics obviously contain bacteria, and bacteria fights off yeast (since they're competing for the same space), she could have told you to stop b/c of the high sugar content of some probiotic drinks? A sugary environment is beneficial for yeast.
If you're taking probiotic capsules, I have no idea why she told you to stop in regard to the yeast.
But like the others, I think she is confused.
Last question -- sure you have vaginal ringworm & not Candida? Ringworm can affect the surrounding groin area, but is usually not the type of yeast that causes vaginal discharge. Or do you have a yeast infection outside of the vaginal area?
I have ringworm/jock itch. It's outside of the vagina. It is surrounding the area and on my inner thighs some.
I also believe I just recently got a vag. yeast infection. I'm not sure what I should do about that. Any ideas anyone?
The ringworm is appearing to get a little better since using "Yeast Rescue" wash and spray and going with cotton loose pants at night as well as the dietary changes. I nearly gave up on the diet recently because I'm starving, but the health food store lady told me that if my kids had cradle cap then I transfered the candida onto them. My youngest had really bad cradle cap and I think my oldest had a little. It makes me sad but also renews my resolve to continue on. I ordered a couple candida diet cookbooks and should get them soon. Maybe that'll help me.
Is that gentian violet stuff safe during pregnancy? I saw some mixed into a remedy at the health food store but I think there were other ingredients in it that aren't safe for pregnancy. I kind of wish I would have waited to get pregnant until I resolved the issues but what's done is done and I'm happy to be having another little one.
