Tried and true yeast killing methods?

Is there a sticky for this? Can't find anything...
Been to the pedi, got Nystatin & using sposies for now.
How did you get rid of the yeast?
Bleach, vinegar, GFSE, TTO, ACV?

Also, is it possible my jar coconut oil is contaminated? I know both DH & are are guilty of "double dipping".

We were told glyclomin or something like that for our yeast. I just washed in hot & used sween & no issues but it was caught right away so that helped us. I not sure on true killing using anything u mentioned.

Bleach is the only thing I trust. And yes, I think your coconut oil is probably contaminated. I'd throw it out.

Yep, all of this.

Re: Tried and true yeast killing methods?

I had to deal with thrush (on me) and found using GSE (grapefruit seed extract) in the wash really helped. I was using it orally and topically as well, so figured it could not hurt to add it to the wash as well. The items I was washing were not bleachable.

Re: Tried and true yeast killing methods?

We used bleach and trashed all of the ointment we'd been using (a whole huge, new tub of CJs!). Honestly once I ditched the old rash creams we had no reappearances.

I was so nervous to use bleach, but everything came out fine- even my 4.0s and BGEs. I did use the clorox fabric care bleach because I, oddly, couldn't find regular unscented bleach at Target.

I had to do two rounds of bleaching to make sure I caught all the dipes. We also used disposables for about a week, and made sure to use the lotrimin for three days after it looked like the rash cleared.
Haven't had any problems since, and DD had a yeast rash for probably the first six weeks of her life! She's now 4.5 months old.

ETA: We tried using vinegar (and the yeast CJs) and it did not work, and prolonged the whole experience.

I believe GSE kills yeast spores while bleach does not. 1 tsp in the wash should do it!

I believe if you add tea tree oil (can buy it at Trader Joes or online) to your wash cycle it will kill yeast.

Just bleach didn't work for us. I've added some GSE to the wash and a few extra rinses. I also made my own wipe solution with distiller water, coconut oil & GSE.

My phone thinks it smarter than me. Please pardon any mistakes.

While using sposies, you can use Gentian Violet Extract on baby's bum- but it STAINS! Works so great tho, it's worth it to me. You can get GV at Walmart or Walgreens for like $1- ask the pharmacist. Keep it in case you ever get thrush- a dot on the nipples and in baby's mouth just a few times and BAM it's gone.

Good luck!
