Is it okay for my son to go to a waterpark a week from now if he has a yeast infection?

We have a birthday party to go to and just wanted to know if it would be safe. He finished his antibiotics today but has been diagnosed with a yest infection on thursday. I'm suppossed to put this cream on for two weeks. Just wanted to know if he'll be okay to go in the water. Thanks, God Bless!!

  • I have never been prescribed antibiotics for a little boys yeast infection. hmm....only the cream.

    Anywho, I would say as long as its healed or in the process of healing, if its still open and raw I would not, it might sting or burn and could let another infection in.

    But by that time it should be healed.

  • Oh, ok I re-read. Was he prescribed an antibotic for something else and it CAUSED the yeast?

  • I think in a week he should be well on his way to being healed. He should be fine.
