My friend told me to put probiotics in his food and also directly on the yeast infection. It did seem to help it go away a lot faster. I had better luck with the over the counter yeast meds than I did with the stuff from the Dr.'s office. Oh, and when my youngest kept getting yeast infections, one thing that we did was treat his mouth and his bottom with gentian violet (you can get it at wal-mart by the pharmacy). It turns everything purple, but it did the trick. We didn't have another yeast infection for several months.
