Can Children Have Candida?

Yes, children are susceptible to the same causative factors for a yeast infection as adults. Children whose mothers had a candida yeast infection during their gestation and/or birth are especially vulnerable to developing a yeast infection. These children are often more sickly, are more likely to be prescribed antibiotics (which worsen yeast infections), are more prone to food allergies and take longer to recover from illnesses. However, they too can greatly benefit from proper yeast infection treatment and healthy lifestyle choices. We often see adolescents, young adults as well as younger children in our clinic with yeast infections, who benefit tremendously from the Candida Crusher Program.
