Poor baby and poor you..I know how smelly a yeast infection can get. Below is a website that will talk about yeast infections and give some ideas to you on how to prevent them, but the best shampoo to use is one that is benzoyle peroxide based...Selsun Blue is a bit harsh, so under the link on yeast infections is a link to different benzyole peroxide based shampoos specifically for dogs. :) I hope this helps and you and your baby get some much needed relief soon. :)
