Hi, does anyone have any natural remedies for a yeast infection for boys? My ds has one on his penis and the doctor told me to use Lotrimen AF. Do you know of other ways to naturally clear this up while not being harmful to his penis? Yes, he is circ'd (dh adamant about it).

When my dh had one (he is intact) he just used the lotrimin cream. He made sure to retract his foreskin and rub it inside and out. It cleared up in no time and didn't cause any harm.

You should stop all sugar. Especially eliminate juice! My son had candida bad (intenstinal), we used homeopathic drops from naturalpath dr. Make sure he gets a high protien diet, as yeast feeds on sugar and carbs but cannot do anything with protien. Limit fruit to only 2 pieces or less until it clears up. Include probiotics acidophilus bifidus etc, just make sure it is for kids!
Also you may want to make a tea of Pau d'arco for him. As far as topically you could make a oil solution with a few tbsp of olive oil to 10-15 drops of tea tree oil (until you can smell it. Maybe even add lavender which is also antifungal (however anti-bacterial so careful) Good Luck!

peace

The no sugar thing is really important for yeast, you can also try to get him to eat and drink acidic things like cranberry juice and pineapples. One other thing that is good is a probiotic like acidolphous, available at the health food store.
