Answer . Other information below this is partially incorrect. Thrush is the term used when a Candida yeast infection of the mouth occurs.

Thrush is caused by yeast, already present in the body, that grows out of control. This yeast is almost always Candida albicans, but another, more resistant yeast, Candida glabrata, can also lead to thrush. Many women, (as well as men and children) carry yeast in and on their bodies without any prob…lems. Yeast usually lives in the intestines, vagina, mouth and skin, where 'friendly' bacteria help keep yeast levels low. When this balance is disrupted, however, and the yeast is allowed to grow unchecked, it causes havoc in the body. The vagina is one of the areas most likely to be affected by thrush. Although the vagina is generally too acidic for yeast to grow out of control, it's sensitive to small changes and can easily become an ideal environment for yeast to flourish. Too much yeast irritates the vaginal tissues and this leads to the typical symptoms of thrush. ( Full Answer )
You can try YeastClear or taking AZO yeast tablets. also, cut back on anything made with yeast: breads, candy, etc. there's a book called "the yeast connection cookbook" that can help. i got mine at amazon.com for 1.99. There are two steps - firstly medicate. There are creams available and also pe…ssaries (which is really a big pill you insert into your vagina). There is a new medication out which is an oral pill - but try the pessary first. The creams and pessaries are available over the counter from a pharmacy. Then you need to make changes to stop the candida reoccuring. Things like how you wipe, your underwear and clothes and such. Always wipe front to back. Wear cotton underwear. Don't wear underwear to bed. Avoid tight clothes like jeans. Wash your bath towel every day or every-other-day. Change your sheets regularly. Make sure your sexual partner is not infected and re-infecting you. If it doesn't clear up, see a doctor. Also avoid any food containing yeast as this contributes to the infection. You will need to check supermarket food labels carefully. If it is vaginal candida,yoghurt can help.If candida is systemic(in mouth,throat,vagina)then system out of whack and will need a more extensive diagnosis from doctor.Disease or bad diet can bring the onset of candida.

If you are tradional weaning, then formula baby food can be found in grocery stores and supermarkets. There are a variety of purees and flavours depending on your babies age. If you are baby-led weaning that you have a greater range of options - as your baby can mostly eat whatever you have. This… obviously works within reason, you can't offer your baby junk food - though you can do healthier alternatives, and you must check before offering. Items such as shellfish, chocolate and honey should not introduced before they are 1 year old and excessive salt and sugar must always be monitored. Search for BLW and you will find many supportive forums and information from other parents. ( Full Answer )

don't risk your teeth. Oral thrush requires a full course of antibiotics. Unsweetened yogurt and cheese won't hurt but are definitely not a cure Save your time and money- skip the Dr. visit and invest in a bottle of peroxide. Swab your mouth with it several times a day. This is much more effective …than any diet, and significantly cheaper than prescription medication. And, as antibiotics are known to CAUSE yeast infections, probably much more effective.

Oral thrush comes from an overgrowth of Candida Albinans. It is a fungus that lives in the body and feeds on processed sugar and carbohydrates. So if you want to go for a natural treatment, the first thing to do is to watch what you are eating. For the length of the treatment, you must avoid all …breads, pastries, pasta, or mostly anything with wheat, rye, buckwheat, kamut... avoid all yeast. Also avoid all sugar, especially processed sugars. That includes stuff like maple syrup, honey, brown sugar, molasses... if you can, eat less fruits. Choose berries, grapefruit, cranberries, lemons and limes. You can eat brown rice, quinoa, millet. You can eat meat, fish, tofu, nuts. You should eat a lot of fresh vegetables, especially garlic. And you can drink milk, eat yogurt, and a bit of cheese. So yeah basically it's a really healthy diet. I would recommend keeping this diet two or three weeks to be sure that the infection will not come back. This diet will help the Candida go away and keep it away, but this only is probably not enough. In this battle, your main allies are: - Garlic: eat a lot of it, preferably raw. It has anti-fungal properties. - Pro biotic Yogurt: Candida Albicans overgrowth can be controlled by helping the 'good' bacterias in your body who feed on acidophilus. - Oregano oil: this one is really powerful. 5 or 6 drops in a glass of water, 3 to 5 times a day. there are probably other stuff so i welcome people who have other knowledge to please share it! :) ( Full Answer )
