    The over the counter Mycelex (Clotrimazole) is the best thing without going to a Dr. But if you want it gone and quick, you need a prescription for one Diflucan tablet. It's a one tablet treatment and works like a charm! Good Luck!

    We just posted a How To Article on this: How to Cure Yeast Infections in Infants. We have personally been through this a few times. I'll cut and paste from the article. Take a look and I hope your little one is feeling better very soon. If you suspect your infant has a yeast infection, make a call to your pediatrician. The doctor or nurse can review the symptoms with you and advise if an office visit is appropriate. The doctor will typically recommend a prescription for a cream which can be applied to the affected area. Follow your doctors instructions. This is the MOST important step. DO NOT use baby wipes until the yeast infection is gone. Baby wipes can exasperate the problem. It has been our experience that by discontinuing the use of baby wipes until the infection is gone, we had much greater success. Please understand we are not scientists or medical researchers, we just know what worked for our baby. At this point you are asking "Okay genius, without Baby Wipes, how in the world am I going to clean my baby's bottom?" The way your grandmother did. With wash cloths. You likely received a mother load (no pun intended) of baby wash cloths at your baby shower. We have enough to clean the entire labor and delivery ward at the hospital. Make sure they are clean. Run some clean warm water over the wash cloths and wring out any excess. You just want them damp. Place them in the baby wipe warmer. This will ensure easy access and a warm comfortable cloth for your little one's bottom. Rotate them regularly. Damp warm wash clothes sitting around for several hours can lead to other problems. Of course, use a clean cloth for each new changing or wipe down.

    Hello, I'm on the second week and seeing definite improvement on my yeast infection symptoms:

    Note that: If the yeast infection doesn't respond to over the counter treatment, prescription medication will likely be necessary. Similarly, if the symptoms return after two months of being treated, you should contact the doctor for professional treatment rather than resorting again to home treatment.

    If this is the first time you have experienced a yeast infection, you should schedule an appointment to have the condition treated by a doctor instead of resorting to home treatment

    In my opinion the best treatment for yeast infection is something that is natural. The OTC stuff doesn't work permanently and usually burns!

    Here's a link to an article that describes some options without the burning ;-)

    Dear Concerned:

    If you have anything serious, the last thing you want to do is try to get treated by going to a store.

    Please go to a doctor asap. You don't want to risk your health.

    Best wishes
