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. Read more...

What are some probiotics yogurt that helps get rid of yeast infection?

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. Read more...

HI, I have a candida infection under my armpit that was unresponsive to cortisone treatment. What can I get over the counter now that I am on holiday?

Fungal cream. Cortisone does not treat fungal infections, and, in fact,can make them much worse. If you use an over the counter fungal med (Like lotrimin (clotrimazole) or nystatin) and the rash does not get better, see a doc for evaluation. Also avoid fragrances and harsh soaps which cause skin irritation and will add to your problem. Avoid animal products with antibiotics used in their feed, as well. Read more...

I have a candida infection under armpit that is unresponsive to cortisone treatment. What can I get over the counter whilst I am here on holiday in Spain? Do I wash it in the shower or try to keep it dry? I sweat quite a lot now that I am on Concerta dail

Hard to say. Since I have no idea what might be available otc in a foreign country, I can't give you a name. Candida will never respond to hydrocortizone, and may actually like it. Look for an anti-fungal.Here we have micotin or lotrazone OTC that have some anti-fungal activity. Read more...
Intertrigo. Yeast is not likely. Cortisone is not good for yeast, sometimes makes worse. Most likely it is chaffing and tight clothing in hot weather + travel. Shower very beneficial. Not too hot, no scrubbing. Antiperspirant, even if it stings, may help. Hydrocortisone added if severe itch. Do not shave under arms. If persists, a good dermatologist will help you. Read more...
