If your toddler was diagnosed with Candida, how long did it take them to heal, or are they still dealing with it?

If they are still dealing with it, how long have they had it, and have the symptoms tempered down? Any thoughts, comments, advice would be welcome. Thank you!

  • Depends. Are you talking about of the genitals or of the mouth? Used Nystatin (oral or cream) and feed him/her plenty of yogurt and probiotics.
