Hi there, Erik Bakker once again with Candida
Crusher FAQs. Here’s FAQ No. 12. This is a frequently asked question I get. This one’s
from Maria in Sydney, Australia. I believe my child has a yeast infection.
Can children have yeast infections? Maria, there’s no doubt about it. Children
are susceptible to the same cause and effect of yeast infections that adults are. Many
children are actually born with a yeast infection because the mother had a vaginal yeast infection
when she gave birth to the child. Furthermore, many children today are not breast fed for
long enough, I find. And many infants will be placed on cow’s milk, formulas, predisposing
them to digestive problems leading to antibiotics, which again can precipitate a yeast infection. Too many children in my clinic take antibiotics.
Antibiotics are one of the most important causative factors in determining a child’s
yeast infection. Some children I see take 10, 20, 50, even a 100 rounds of antibiotics
before they’re even five years of age; it’s unbelievable. Many doctors still freely prescribe
antibiotics. Children also love to eat a lot of sweat foods,
ice creams and lollies and chocolates and things like that, which will further the yeast
infection. Think about a child with an itchy anus, itchy rectum, you may find this child
has a worm infection. Many children with worms or parasites also have yeast infections. So to answer your question, yes, children
are certainly prone towards yeast infections and benefit very much so from my Candida Crusher
program. Thank you.
