I have (knock on wood) not had problems with thrush, but I suffered from some extreme candidasis 6 years ago. I was nauseous, throwing-up, and having many other symtoms, for years. I was on the candida diet and Nystatin for 1.5 months yielding only a small improvement and it even got worse for the first few weeks, which is said to be a good thing; it's a die off reaction which means it's working. At 1.5 months I got my hands on some coconut oil (it has so easily available then). I felt horrible after I started taking it orally, I was having another, even more intense, die-off reaction. Even after the 1.5 months on Nystatin. And in a few weeks I felt dramatically better after years of undiagnosable nausea.
The coconut oil actually worked better than prescription antifungal and I've read studies that corroborate this (sorry don't have time to search for them now), it's also much, much healthier. Coconut oil is identical to your body's natural defenses, it provides the raw materials for your body to utilize as an antibiotic, antiviral, or antifungal. But you need to take it regularly and in specific doses and I'd suggest starting smaller and working your way up over a week or two. And I'd suggest the diet, though I could see it being a lot of work with a little one.
Keep in mind any treatment for yeast/candida takes a long time to work. I was on it the diet for 4 months, and the coconut oil for longer. Your infection is likely not as bad as mine, but any candida is...
