After first cancer, I had constant yeast infections. I went to an allergist and I was dx being allergic to dairy, soy, corn, yeast, peanuts and latex. I went on a diet free of those foods and I was OK. I take daily acidophilus 4 to 12 tablets a day(must be in the refigerator kind with no dairy) and candex from the health food store. If it is bad, I ask my doctor for diflucan, but I have to take at least a weeks worth. On top of that I put a topical oitment on my skin tea tree oil. No sweets. I have it right now as I ate some sweets. Daughter

I have had non-hodgkins lymphoma for 10 years. And though I never had a yeast infection in my life I now have them constantly. Monostat doesn't work, and usually i have to undergo several prescription meds to get rid of it. Keeps coming back. Don't know if there is a connection or not, but I found it interesting that I'm not the only one.
