Update: 1/18/13 Antibotic/yeast cycle, help please!
Update 1/18/13 10:51am CST:
So I called my chiropractor's office (she does Nutrition Response Therapy). I explained the situation to the Amanda (handles the nutrition/supplements stuff). I told her that I had this particular probiotic and asked if I could give it to my son.
She said "Tell me what supplements you have." I went through them, and she said that my Zymex is actually a treatment for yeast overgrowth. She said to look at his butt, give him 2 Zymex, and then look at his butt again. She said it works THAT FAST. That the rash won't be gone in an hour, but if his body likes the Zymex, that I'll see some significant improvement.
I also have a natural antibiotic, and a "drainage" supplement that drains yeast and bacteria out of the body.
She said that I could bring him in this evening along with my box of supplements, and they can test him against the supplements I already have. I asked if they could add the $21 fee for the testing to my bill (which I'm paying off next month). Amanda said she'd have to check with Brittany (who does billing) and she'll let me know when I call her back in an hour.
So, there is a good chance I'll be able to skip the prescription stuff, and use all natural remedies that will do the same good stuff without causing the bad imbalances. Yay!
I didn't know it was only $21 to scan the kids, or I would have called sooner!
My 3 yr old (3yrs old next month) got put on some antibiotics for an infection. The antibiotics caused a yeast rash on the butt and penis (as I knew it would). But the yeast caused open sores, which then got infected from the poop and stuff. So now the pediatrician has given us an antibiotic cream for the diaper area and wants him on oral antibiotics as well...
But the problem with that.. is I bet it will cause the yeast rash to get out of hand again (and it's not totally gone yet)... so I just see this as an ongoing cycle.
Any suggestions? The coconut oil wasn't clearing up the yeast. The Nystatin made it better (I had some on hand) but didn't clear it up. And now we're using the antibiotic cream.
The antibiotics are needed, because the infection is in the base of his p***s, and it was swollen and red. So I don't want to NOT give him the antibiotics.
