Re: Yeast Rash and Thrush? Homemade remedies?
Do you have any unrefined coconut oil? If you have some tea tree oil, you can add a few drops to a few tbs of coconut oil and use that as a diaper area ointment. If you have GSE, that would be great to add to the mix as well.
You want to make sure that you are limiting any refined carbs (white flours, white sugars) and make sure she is getting lots of probiotics. Fermented/cultured foods are best (yogurt, kefir, fermented veggies, etc) are more affordable and the live/active probiotics are right there, no need to worry about pills or powders.
You should really strip the cloth diapers as well. Tea tree oil will help kill the yeast. Putting the diapers in the sunshine will help kill yeast as well.
