What a nice idea... try smearing the following one at a time and let it sit:
- apple cider vineger (mother's version)
- coconut oil - I wouldn't add it to a bath because you don't want the oil down the drain.
- you can buy some OTC Head-and-Shoulders (fungal version), Monistat and try smearing that on and leave it overnight
For a bath I would try adding some borax, crank the heat up very carefully if you can.
Hope he gets some relief -
FWIW - we've been using coconut oil soap for many years now. Absolutely love love love it. It inadvertently (and accidentally) resolved some skin issues with a few of my kids (one of the issues was likely yeast related). We use it for everything - bath/shower/hand soap/etc. Even shampoo when kids were younger.
We have never (knock on wood) had issues with it going down the drain. However, the coconut oil soap doesn't solidify like just plain coconut oil.
OP - I really recommend looking into coconut oil soap for daily use. I highly recommend it.
Just be careful with that one. It can help people with yeast, but it also can be problematic too. That one is iffy, so be careful on that one. For me, ACV aggravated my yeast issue. I was on it for a few weeks, and it caused a flare for sure. As soon as I stopped, flare went away. So, just be careful with that one. It's iffy in my book.
I remember listening to a talk about
skin issues being a mirror of what's going on inside. Basically, yeast externally can mean a yeast imbalance internally. So, if it were me, I'd be treating both internally and externally (for the symptoms) if at all possible.
Just my 2.2 cents.
Good luck. Yeast can be such a pain!
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Very sick now despite being treated for years, still very bad
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.
