Children’s Candida Symptoms

Children, too, can suffer from candida yeast overgrowth and infants from Baby Thrush. Children can get yeast infections in all the classic ways; the white yeasty coat on the tongue or lips known as Thrush, skin rashes -including diaper rash, anal rash and even fungal sinus infections. The good news with children is that they recover from Candida yeast faster than adults!

Symptoms may include

  • Frequent and heavy diaper rash
  • Other “eczema” type skin rashes
  • Oral Thrush (white film in mouth or on lips or tongue)
  • Colicky longer than 3 months
  • Symptoms worse on damp days or in damp environments
  • Recurrent ear problems
  • Craving sweets all the time
  • Headaches
  • Hyperactive
  • Learning problems
  • Autism
  • Often irritable
  • Ongoing nasal congestion, cough or wheezing
  • Unhappy, hard to please
  • Seems unwell yet doctors do not find anything wrong

How do children “get” Candida?

Most times, this yeast unbalance in the intestinal flora is caused by frequent use of antibiotics or steroids (such as asthma medications or antibiotics for ear infections). Some children just seem to have a constitution that is susceptible to Candida yeast overgrowth and infections: these are the children who have a history with baby thrush, yeasty diaper rash and cradle cap as babies and continue to have skin rashes and other yeast problems as they grow older.

Candida and Autism in Children is Treatable!

Autistic children almost always have a fungal overgrowth component.

From Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona, M.D., Ph.D., “Many children with autism respond to anti-fungal treatment, and score high for yeast and anaerobic bacteria on such tests as the Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis test, available at the Great Plains Laboratory or Great Smokies Laboratory.”

If your doctor hasn’t been of any help in this you are not alone. Doctors are notorious for not understanding the fungal candida connection to illness.

“Judging from contacts with several hundred parents over the past few years, only about one physician in 20 or 30 will give serious consideration to the possibility that treating candida may alleviate the symptoms of autism. Most physicians regard concern with candida as just another fad, soon to be forgotten. I wish they were right, but I don’t think they are.”

Diet

Another factor in children’s candida/yeast problems I think we have to consider is diet. Despite our attempt as parents to give them a balanced diet, there is the birthday party at school, the sucker at the bank, the PTA dessert potluck, the cakewalk at church, the doughnut at the grocery store to tide them over ’til dinner -the endless desire for sodas! Then they only pick at their chicken, broccoli and potatoes. . . it’s tough to deny them these treats because it almost seems like one of the rights of childhood, but a high-sugar diet can weaken the immune system and be a set-up for yeast problems in children.


My 2-1/2 year old daughter has had a yeast infection on the skin in her groin area and upper legs for SIX MONTHS. I tried everything I knew — and I DID understand it was intestinally related, thank goodness — bifidus, dophilus, lactic acid/yeast balancing supplements, topicals too — NOTHING did it. She also has had chronic skin irritations — usually crocodile-dry patches, sometimes bumps, etc. CHRONIC. I’ve got her on EFAs (Essential fatty acids -ed.) but irritations persist. After five days on Threelac, everything is GONE GONE GONE!!! I am so relieved I’m in tears. I’m not usually one to write, but I am so grateful I found this product. My girl has baby-soft skin again. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! -Tracey F


Just wanted to let you know that my daughter’s Candida is getting under control per her alternative medicine doctor. She continues faithfully on the Fivelac. -Dolores


Marti & Jim’s story with their 8 year old son

His most dramatic child Candida symptom was a skin rash that just would not go away. We tried everything under the sun on it, from oatmeal baths to cortisone cream to natural salves and essential oils. About 10 days after our son began taking Threelac the skin rash just disappeared and has not returned. It’s now almost 5 years later. We gave him just one packet a day. He continues today with a few packets a week.

Some health care practitioners even believe that child candida can affect children’s behavior: we saw a difference with our son once we got his child-hood candida under control. He became much calmer and more relaxed and able to stop and think before acting. That meant less trouble in school.

Candida Treatment for Children and
infant Thrush / baby Thrush

Of all the people we help the littlest ones are most gratifying as they are the easiest to treat. For infants or babies with Thrush on their mouths or tongues and bad diaper rash you need only give them a little Threelac on their tongues.* You can also put it on the nipple when the child is nursing. If mom has nipple rash then she should be taking Threelac and perhaps GHT’s Yeast Recovery Programs herself so she can put a stop to the transfer of the Candida yeast back and forth. adult yeast test

If the infant is eating solid or semi solid foods the Threelac can easily be mixed in with that. Infants and babies need only about 1/8 to 1/4 packet a day. See below for the standard “Clark’s Rule” for dosages.

Small children can take a bit more, 1/4 to 1/2 packet a day according to weight and it can be mixed with any food or taken “straight” on the tongue followed with water. Children like it as it tastes like a powdery lemony candy.

*We recommend that you check with the child’s physician before giving anything to a child under 5, just to make sure there are no reasons that child should not be taking that product. Many of our customers have used Threelac for young children and infants with successful results.

GHT’s Suggested Serving Sizes for Children

ThreeLac: GHT says children ages 2 and up may take the same amount of ThreeLac that adults take. (We don’t think they need that much, however.)

Many of our customers have used Threelac for young children, even infants, with good results. A number of our customers have put a “pinch” of ThreeLac on the nipple for nursing infants, or on the baby’s tongue.

We recommend that you check with the child’s physician before giving anything to a child under 5, just to make sure there are no reasons that child should not be taking that product. Many of our customers have used Threelac for young children, even infants, with good results.
