  • To aid the body with over active yeast, give her some probiotics. Or you can give her a good organic yogurt. Stonyfield is our favorite. It will put the good bacteria back into her body that has been ravaged by the antibiotics. The good bacteria crowds out the bad bacteria & will keep her yeast levels at bay. To get rid of it on her skin, you can use gentian violet, available over the counter at your pharmacy. It will stain her purple for about a day & a half with each application. But in that time, it will clear it right up.

  • If you want to go natural, apply plain yogurt. Depending on age, you can also feed her plain yogurt. Otherwise, you can use Lotrimin cream, the generic name is clotrr------something like that. Your doctor did not advise you on what to do???
