Hi! My 15 month old has a yeast infection and I was wondering if there was any natural cure I can use instead of getting Lotrimin? I hate the thought of putting that cream on her, so I am hoping to find another alternative!

Thanks Mama's!!!

There is lots of info if you do a search in the health and healing forum, but I think generally whats recomended is to cut out sugar and simple carbs and take probiotics. I hope it goes away quickly!

When my daughter had it as an infant. I used a mixture of olive oil mixed with tea tree oil, grapefruit seed extract and something else... and it went away so quick...

I second cutting out the sugars etc...anything that yeast thrives on.

ITA the above. Go get a good probiotic for her, too. Yogurt, kefir, lacto fermented veggies that have not been pasturized. Sort her gut out and you'll sort her yeast infection out!

Colloidal silver spray works really well for my DD's yeast rashes. Digestive enzymes in between meals (Candex, Candidase, Candizyme) help with systemic yeast, especially if takes with an anti-fungal, also (like coconut oil or oil of oregano).
