In brief: Florastor

The probiotic florastor, a yeast based probiotic containing a saccromyces species, has been shown to decrease the risk of recurrent c-diff and is a reasonable choice for prevention during antibiotic treatment, along with good hygeine practices.

In brief: Wash hands

Washing hands frequently and thoroughly with hand soaps or sanitizers would be a great idea to minimize c.
Diff risks. Antibiotics should be taken as directed but no more than advised.
