Plain/acidophilus: You need a non-sweetened yogurt that contains active acidophilus, the friendly bacteria that helps keep yeast in check. Many commercial brands do not have it, so be sure to read the label. And if it doesn't work, see your doctor, because something else may be going on.

Yogurt and probiotic: Yeast infections are opportunistic infections and probiotic consumption may reduce frequency and duration of yeast infections. If infections persists, seek medical evluation.

No.: No. Candidiasis requires treatment with antimycotics (antifungal drugs). I am not aware of any evidence that any so-called "probiotic" can prevent or cure fungal infections.
