Is peanut butter a good or bad thing to eat when ur trying to make sure that u don't get a yeast infection back? (Pb in peanut butter tastykakes)

Tastykakes BAD!!!: Most yeast infections occur after antibiotics.

Unsweetened peanut butter is OK but sweets like tastykakes are best avoided as much as possible. Taking probiotics will help too. See http://tinyurl.com/234ag4b ...Read more
