The bottle instructions recommend applying every 6 hours, but since yeast grows back in 1 1/2 hours, it will be more effective if you give half the dosage every 3 hours. Donīt skip medication at nighttime. Infant Diflucan is very effective in treating yeast overgrowth (thrush). If using infant Diflucan, use as directed.This healthful bacteria will help re-balancing your babyīs GI tract.
