If you are not opposed to taking pharmaceuticals, you could try nystatin tablets. The change in diet will work but takes a long time to get over it
like that. The nystatin will kill it and the change in diet will stop it from coming back. As the body gets back in to balance you will be able to
re-introduce carbs and other fungal byproducts.
The candida diet is really severe, it cuts out everything that has any link to fungus, not all of these things will be a problem to you and your son.
The idea is to stick at it for a couple of months and then re-introduce one thing ad a time like alcohol, cheese, mushrooms. Try these out for another
couple of months and then if it agrees with you, you can keep them and add something else back.
But it is a really hard thing to get under control because candida will always be in your body and it is about keeping it in balance, and what will
not affect you now may affect you when you add the influence of a change in season or something.
A tip for you, as you are going in to your winter, especially if you get condensation on the inside of your windows at night, give the window sill a
good clean at least once a week. And if you have metal windows that slide, give the tracks a good clean with an old rag and a skewer, or chopstick. A
weak bleach solution works well. But do it with a mask on, or some airflow through the room and out the window because you will disturb a lot of mold
