Re: Yeast Disaster

I know this is old but there is alot of comments of GSE and yeast. Obviously it's a he said she said thing but I have read the while GSE is good to combating yeast is it only effective at 10 drops per oz of water. It has to be less diluted than EO.

So in the wipes solution 10 drops per oz. TTO a drop or 2 may be enough but not GSE. I'm not sure I could add enough to be effective in the washing machine. This thread people suggested a tablespoon... I guess in my front loader that may amount to about right...

On th monistat, how often did you apply? The box for its typical use says once a day, dr sears says 2-3 times. Dd has had a rash for a few weeks now and we almost get it gone and then it flares up. I think the flare ups are once after I had a lot of sugar the day before, a party, so tht affected her milk and the other is after putting her in a diaper that I think caused it all. She got some dipes for Christmas and 2 were used fitteds and it started after she wore them both
We have been doing lots of air, wiping with diluted acv at changes and either kaolin clay based powder to keep dry or using a diaper cream with tto. Just started monistat today. Dipes have been treated every load with tto and gse, sunning when I can and super hot water on a sanitize cycle.

DS's has been on and off. It cleared up so well and then came back. It's been a battle. Just when something appears to be working, it comes back. I had a recent hospital stay so my diapering routine isn't normal yet. But GSE in my wipes made a big difference and it definitely did in my diapers. I may go see the doc again if it hasn't cleared up soon. This is getting ridiculous.

We're still struggling with this. I even did a concoction of Monistat, lotrimin, GSE, tea tree oil, and olive oil, topped with yogurt. It eventually came back.

Called the doctor, they said to use regular diaper rash creams for 5 days and if its still there, to bring him in.

I also did the vinegar bath and then the tea tree oil bath.

Poor baby

IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!

After months of battling the yeast monster, I have come to find out: IT'S NOT EVEN YEAST! I changed doctors to a much better one (hardly any wait AND he spent an hour with my son&I!) and he asked me what the other doc said to do and what all I did. Here's what I've done:

Monistat
Lotrimun
Nystatin
TTO & olive oil
GSE & olive oil
Apple Cider Vinegar baths
A combo of 1-5 in a slick paste
Boudreaux Butt Paste (after I called the original doc this is what they left me to do)

Nothing worked!

Well my son has eczema, and his cradle cap was horrific. Turns out the same dermatitis that causes cradle cap can cause the rash he's had. It was never yeast. He said they look so much alike, but since I did EVERYTHING under the sun and it didnt clear up, it was a skin issue.

Here's what he had me do:

A topical RX steroid (triamcinolone)
Any diaper ointment
Tinactin cream

He said when its a rash like this he treats both yeast and seborrhea at the same time. Combine all 3 in equal parts and voila! My son looks shiny and brand new!

So if you are going through hell with a yeast problem, it may not even be yeast! I really hope this helps someone because I could of hugged his new doc for what a relief this has been. Plus the steroid worked miracle on his cradle cap ( google image cradle cap and the worst one was how my sons was)!

Also he told me the mico______ yeast fighters aren't as effective anymore, that the yeast is becoming immune. That's why he say Tinactin instead!

HTH!
