What EO do I need for yeast?

Rebekah has another yeast infection :-/

What EO is good for yeast? I should write this down, lol, so I don't forget again.

To use it, all I need is a carrier oil right-like olive oil or coconut oil?

Tea tree oil. Especially for an infant.
You can use tto neat, but you don't need to, especially with the youngins. Unless you need to dry it out, then neat is best. Otherwise, yes, a few drops in OO or CO is perfect. If you CD, remember to put her in disposables until its gone, and sun bleach the cloth before you put them back on.
I hope she feels better soon, no fun!

Tea tree oil and olive oil. Use it with your wipes every diaper change.
Also do a lot of diaper free time!!

Thanks. I do have TTO so I'll start using that on her when I get home.

DD just had a yeast rash in the creases of her legs. I used TTO in OO and I also used Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm, per the suggestion of another mama in this group. Once it started looking better, I dabbed a little cornstarch on the spots before putting her nighttime diaper on her to keep those spots dry.

We used a script for nystatin last time. I'm using it again now but it's almost all and I didn't want to take her to the doc for a new script if I didn't have to since we've had to switch doctors.
