Yeast Fungal Infection - 9 1/2 mos old

Doc said my sweet boy has a yeast fungal infection. It's showing as 1 patch on each thigh and another below his belly button. I'm going to try and treat it with tea tree oil. These are my questions:
1) What are some causes?
2) I understand one cause could be dietary (sugars/carbs). Sweet Boy is BF and on solids. Should I make changes to his diet or both our diets?
3) We cloth diaper. The infection is not in his genital or bum area. Do I need to strip/disinfect the diapers?

Thanks in advance!

Has he recently been on a course of antibiotics?

Probiotics such as natural yogurt may be helpful.
