And here's a partial answer to my question

I keep saying why does the thrush/yeast rash keep coming back and why does he get an ear infection at the same time? I said to Kevin yesterday maybe it's all related. He just nods and "hmm"s. If there's such an over growth of yeast that allows the thrush and rash to come back maybe it's affecting and allowing or causing the ear infections? Possible? Yes.

"Ear infections are caused by bacteria at the back of the mouth and at the
beginning of the tubes leading to the ears. There are both benign bacteria and
bacteria capable of causing disease. There are other microorganisms present in
those places, however. The yeast Candida albicans also lives in the back of the
mouth and at the beginning of the tubes leading to the ears. In summary, even though the yeast which aid the disease causing bacteria are at the back of the mouth and throat, all the yeast which is in the rest of the intestinal tract makes it easier for yeast to grow in other parts of the body. So eliminating yeast from the intestinal tract is necessary to reduce the yeast in the throat and mouth, which in turn stops the ear infections. "

Ah ha. Makes sense if the thrush in his mouth is flaring up and traveling up to the ear canals where it can breed in that nice, warm, moist area. Anyway...I like when I am semi-right or intuitive about things =)

Candida can be a very irritating yeast infection. A person who has developed this infection suffers from itchiness and burning. If you are infected by Candida, you will require the proper treatment. Otherwise this infection can not be controlled and may spread to other parts of the body. Candida usually develops in the moist and damp parts of your body like vagina and around the douches. It is a fungal infection and depending on your conditions it may take a few months for it to fully clear up. One of the best ways of preventing Candida is by adopting a healthy lifestyle. However, it is a chronic infection that can reemerge frequently. Therefore, we have provided some advices that may prove helpful in preventing its onset.

If you have suffered from Candida before, it may reappear, as it is a chronic infection. We suggest that you avoid wearing very tight nylon clothes or any other clothes that accumulate moisture. Tight fittings and nylon underpants create damp and warm environment that breeds Candida. Do not sit in your swimming suit for along time. Dry your body completely after taking a bath because moisture on your body can be harmful if you have developed Candida before.

If you are suffering from Candida, you should be more careful about your personal hygiene. Keep your body clean and dry. Do not use soaps that cause irritation. Try avoiding harsh shampoos. They may cause burning or pain in the effected body parts. It is recommended that you should not take unnecessary doses of antibiotics because they can affect the immune system of body and may create suitable environment for Candida infection.
