what causes yeast infections in children?

Question: what causes yeast infections in children?
8 year old female; no immuno-compromising issues; healthy, active, though she does have a tendency toward sensory processing issues, and because of it can have serious, irrational melt-downs. Lately, the yeast infections have flared up, and so has the sensory processing issues/behavior. I’m starting to wonder if there could be a connection between the presence of yeast and possibly blood sugar levels that affect her behavior? She’s been tested for diabetes – all clear.

Diets that are high in sugar can definately cause recurring yeast infections. Cutting back on carbs will help quite a bit because the yeast will have less to eat.

    Kids can get these infections from poor hygiene.
    Not wiping properly or running around in a wet bathing suit too long.
    Hi blood sugars do help yeast grow- just like you need sugar in any yeast product to make it grow.
